OTTOMAN PERIOD MAPS

Ottoman period World map 1840c

Ottoman period World map 1840c

By chance I came across a second hand / antiquarian book fair in Istanbul recently and one of the exhibitors had just dismantled a small Ottoman atlas.

I immediately fell in love with the small world map with original colour. The map of the Americas had the pre 1846 Canadian / United States border so the map was printed before 1845.

I have no knowledge of Ottoman cartographers or publishers perhaps someone has more information

  1. Dear Mick,

    you had better take a look at Piri Reis! He is an Ottoman period marine!

    Cheers!
