This relief street map is highly detailed, with such labels as slave market (Ysir basuri, Marché aux Esclaves), Greek church, Armenian church, Janissary quarters, sultan’s tomb, harem, cistern, (embassies of) Prussia, Naples, Venice, cannon foundry, hospital, and tavern. Major architectural edifices are labeled including Hagia Sophia, Topkap? Palace, the Horse Bazaar, the Suleymaniye Complex, and the great city walls. The map concentrates primarily on Ottoman structures and place names, with little reference to much of what was then extant (aside from the walls) of the remains of the Byzantine Empire.

Condition: Short tears along vertical folds, into the margins in two places. Left side cut or torn close to the margin.
