This is an authentic, antique map showing the reaches of the Ottoman Empire at the height of its power with comparisons to the Empires of Alexander the Great and the Romans. The map was published out of Amsterdam by Henri Abraham Chatelain circa 1719.

This impressive map is one of the only maps of its era to cover the entire Ottoman Empire. From southern Europe and Northern Africa, the map extends as far east to include the Arabian Peninsula, Persia and the Caspian Sea. Two insert maps include a smaller version of the map extending a bit further east to include the Ganges River, and a map of Greece that notes Macedonia (the birthplace of Alexander the Great). The map pays great attention to detail noting hundreds of towns and large cities, mountain ranges, and river systems.

On either side of the map are extensive tables noting the exact locations of important towns and states throughout the map. Also included alongside the tables are lengthy descriptions recounting the history of Alexander the Great and the Roman Empire.

Condition: Map is in B+ condition with areas of mild damp staining.
