Pair of fine bird's-eye views based on Guillaume-Joseph Grelot's travels in the late seventeen century. First shows the beautiful city with a variety of ships and boats in the Bosphorus. Second depicts the fortresses at Hellespont, the Dardanelles, the Marmara Sea and Constantinople in the background.
One faint spot, else very good.
