This is the appearance of Johanngeorgenstadt during the early 1800s, during Klaproth's lifetime. The main town was built on the hill, while the mines were down below at the bottom of the bluff. Being on the Saxony-Bohemia border, Johanngeorgenstadt particularly suffered the ravages of the Thirty Years War 1618-1648.
