This is a very rare and separately issued 2 sheet map of the Bosphorus Straits.
The map covers the area from the Black Sea to Istanbul. Extends to the small towns of Belgrad and Alt Belgrad, and shows roads, farming regions, and the extensive fortifications.
Large compass rose. Scarce highly collectable separately issued map of the region, with extensive text notes.
There is rstoration on centre fold and where the 2 sheets were joined and a small piece missing and replaced top right.. There is some old restoration on smallish tears and some light staining at top of map but generally these blemishes are in the text part of the map and the main part of map is in good condition. However this is such a rare map that the repairs do not detract.
