This is a very uncommon map of the Ottoman Empire. It covers the whole Mediterranean and extends through present-day Turkmenistan in the north and includes Northeastern Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. The map is boldly engraved, packed with information and decorated with a fine title cartouche. The map was originated by Delisle, as credited in the cartouche, revised and published by Senex.
Original outline color with a bit of minor foxing. There is a 1" tear at bottom left that has been closed on verso with archival tape.
