A very scarce dissected and linen backed map covering from Otranto on the coast of Italy to the western end of the Black Sea and from Constantinople to Cyprus. Details include towns and ports along the coast of the mainland and the islands, and along the coast of Turkey, from Cacamo to Constantinople. An attractive decorative cartouche surrounds the title.
The map is damp stained and becoming detached from the linen backing. Engraving crisp and paper is sound. Should be rebacked.
