Finely detailed map of Cypus, showing towns, mountains, rivers and topographical details. Embellished with several ships.

This work was probably inspired by the Venetian conquests in Greece in the 1680s. It includes a very thorough and systematic description of the Aegean Islands, Crete, Cyprus, and brief descriptions of Roumelia and the Peloponnesus.
