This detailed map focuses on Turkey and the region surround the Black Sea and is based on both modern and ancient sources. The map is filled with place names, and Turkey is divided into regions. The title appears above the map in both French and Latin. The distance scales are surrounded by symbols from the region, as well as a man with a club fighting a sword-wielding man on horseback.
A nice impression with contemporary color on a watermarked sheet with light toning and soiling.
