Cyprus : E. Stanford

In 1878 the Turks handed over Cyprus to be ruled by Great Britain. The need for accurate mapping soon became apparent. Lt. Kitchener, in command of a group of surveyors, arrived that year. He stayed on until 1883 as the first British Director of Lands and Surveys. This map corresponds to the index plan of Kitchener's very large scale "Trigonometrical Survey ...", engraved on 15 copper plates. Here it is as an administrative map with an explanation section which shows such details as the Christian and Muslim villages and chief towns of districts. Published in Edward Stanford's "London Atlas of Universal Geography" first published in 1887, examples of the sheet maps that made up the atlas were also sold separately and kept up-to-date on an individual basis.
