Turcici Imperii Descriptio ... : A. Ortelius

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Ortelius' second map of the Ottoman Empire, distinguishable by its cartouche with putti above the title legend. The detailed area of the map extends from the Balkans to Oman and for Arabia is based on Ortelius' own map of Asia (1567), itself derived from Gastaldi's 1561 Asia map. A typically bold and attractive plate from the first systematic "modern" world atlas. Despite negligible paper stains to the right margin this is a very decorative example of this important map from one of the most significant atlas publications of any period.
