An uncommon Italian map of the ancient Turkish Empire, extending east to the Indus River. Although part of Arabia is shown, there is very little detail given. The map is adorned with a vignette depicting ancient statues and a vine archway. This is the eastern half of a two-sheet map, with each map standing on its own with a title cartouche and full borders.
Contemporary color on a sturdy sheet with light printer's ink residue and soiling.
