Major geographical and topographical features are noted including river systems, mountains, forested areas, cities, towns and fortresses.

In the lower left is a decorative title cartouche showing Turkish soldiers and what appears to be a conquered individual offering riches to an Ottoman sultan, seated with his foot resting on a crucifix.

Condition: This map is in B- condition. Short tear with small loss of border repaired with archival material on verso, as is centerfold separation. Soiling in lower right quadrant.
