Ferdinand Duc de Brunswig et Lünebourg Général en Chef de l armée alliée.
|Kilian was the name of a family dynasty of artists, engravers and publishers who worked in Augsburg from the 16th to the 18th centuries. George Christophe Kilian (1709-1780), was the son of Georg Kilian, who worked as a copper engraver from Augsburg. Among other things, he published his Small Atlas (1757), America Septentrionalis (1760). Originally engraved by Joh.Stridbeck junior, the plates were published by Hans Georg Bodenehr and acquired by Stridbeck Sr. in 1717 after the death of Stridbeck Sr. The name Joh.Stridbeck junior is then replaced by Bodenehr. The name of this edition was changed to Kilian, the rarest edition of all.|
