Lovely small map based on Ortelius' cartography showing the extent of the Turkish Empire. It includes the Balkans, northeastern Africa, Arabia and all the Middle East. The title is enclosed in a ribbon-style cartouche. Engraved by Petrus Kaerius. French text on verso.
A nice impression on a sheet with a minor marginal spot, not affecting the map.
