Fine full color example of Pierre Mariette's rare map of Cyprus.

Mariette's map of Cyprus is based upon Jansson's map of 1637, which drew upon the map of Iacomo Franco issued circa 1570. Franco's map was also the source of Ortelius' map of 1573 and Blaeu's map of 1635. The map includes a decorative cartouche, with Eros atop the cartouche, along with two coats of arms.

Mariette's cartographical content is relatively similar to the maps of Jansson and Blaeu, but signficantly rarer. There are several noteworthy misspellings, including Nocosia (Nicosia) and Calopetria (Cacopetria).
