Rivers and mountains dominate this uncommon map with the locations of cities and villages carefully noted. The title and a notation are enclosed in a drape-style cartouche at top, flanked by two Turks. Although Petrini credits Sanson, the map closely resembles that of Giacomo Cantelli da Vignola, published in 1686.

References: Zacharakis #2116.

Condition: A

Printed on heavy, watermarked paper with original outline color and later coloring in the cartouche. There is a bit of light toning along sheet edges.

Estimate: $500 - $650

Sold for: $375
