This grand map shows the extent of the Ottoman Empire with comparisons to the Empires of Alexander the Great and the Romans. It covers the Mediterranean, southern Europe, and northern Africa and extends to the Caspian Sea, Persia, and the Arabian peninsula. Below are two insets, one of an area similar to the large map and the other of the Peloponnese (Greece). At the sides, tables describe the countries and towns depicted on the maps, together with historical notes on the Empire of Alexander the Great and the Roman Empire. Two sheets joined, as issued.
A fine impression on a watermarked sheet with some minor toning, faint offsetting, and two short fold separations.
