An intersting map of Frankfurt am Main and Sachesenhausen with an extensive index of street names and house numbers corresponding to markings on the map. There seems to be plantations were the old city wall earlier stod. It was demolished just a few years before this map was made. The hinterland depicted on the map is all within a quarter of an hour of travel from the town, which in this context is quite an unusual way of giving information on distance. Christian Friedrich Ulrich (1764/65- 1828) was an architecht and mathematician. Uncommon map.
