Short Desription

This lavishly illustrated catalogue of the exhibit European Cartographers and the Ottoman World, 1500-1750, explores how mapmakers sought to document a new geography of the Near East that reconciled classical ideas and theories with the information collected and brought back by travelers and voyagers. The text is accompanied by images of illuminated manuscript charts and atlases, the earliest printed maps of the Ottoman Empire, and bird's-eye views of cities that provided "arm-chair travelers" with the experience of knowing distant places.
