Description

Rare separately issued map of Greece, Asia Minor and Turkey, published in Paris by Jollain.

Jollain's map is based upon the Nikolaus Sophianos' map of Greece, first engraved around 1540, which was published by Johannes Oporinus in Basel in 1545, as an eight block woodcut map, and in 1552 as a four sheet engraved map, and is generally regarded as one of the most important early modern maps of Greece.

This Jollain edition is extremely rare. We find no record of the map in any reference work or on line, other than Zackarakis.
