2) Printable World Maps
As an Euratlas-Info member you can download printable blank or labeled world maps adapted for A4 sheets: a b/w blank map, a b/w labeled map with the countries, a color blank map and a color labeled map with all the countries. Small fonts were used for the names so that all the 194 independant states of the world can be shown on one single sheet.

3) Croatia, Slavonia, Bosnia, Serbia and Montenegro
Here is an old map of the Dalmatian lands: Croatia, Slavonia, the Military Frontier, Serbia, Bosnia, Herzegovina and Montenegro. Considering the boundaries shown on it and the activity of the author, it appears that this map was drawn about 1865. Friedrich Handtke (1815 -1879 ) was the director of the cartographic section in the Carl Flemming (1806 -1878 ) publishing house in Glogow or Glogau. Handtke drew himself 168 maps out of  260 published under his authority.

Croatia, Slavonia etc.

You will also see photos of the colourful Tirana, the Berat citadel, Shkodër, Saranda and several Albanian landscapes.
