Clear and accurate map of Turkey in Europe, drawn at a time when the Ottoman Empire extended to Belgrade and the border with Hungary. John Cary was considered ‘the most representative, able and prolific of English cartographers’. Tooley says, ‘As an engraver he was elegant and exact with fine clear lettering and great delicacy of touch’. When the Ordnance Survey began accurately mapping the UK, they used John Cary’s style as the basis for their work. Cary’s New Universal Atlas.

Copper engraving. Original colour. Very good condition. Size: 52 x 46 cm.
