Natolie.

(Asia, Ottoman Empire, Anatolia, Asia Minor, Turkey, Black Sea, Cyprus, Crimea, Ottoman Soldiers).

Issued 1683, Paris, for A.M. Mallet. 

Charming 17th century copper engraved map with lovely hand color.

Wonderful vignette scene across the bottom includes soldiers on horseback and a multitude of banners behind a scroll work title cartouche.

The image has a near folk-art feel, a style unique to this historical era. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this reason.

Mostly clean and well preserved example, the image displays a fine patina.

Sheet measures c. 7 7/8" H x 5 7/8" W.

Printed area measures c. 5 1/2" H x 4" W.
