Plate, William Henry F.
London. George Cox. 1853.
Engraved map, outline handcolor, 12 1/2 x 15 1/2 inches including decorative border on sheet 13 3/4 x 17 inches, dissected into 6 and mounted on linen, folding to 7 x 5 1/2 inches. Overall light toning, very good. Handwritten paper label on front panel of folded map. This appears to be the same map as was published for the Society of Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, but instead of that publishing line, there is the attribution: "London. George Cox. Jany. 1st. 1853." A very detailed and finely engraved map naming the major divisions of 'Anadoli', 'Rumili', 'Karaman' on the mainland and Cyprus, Rhodes and many of the islands off the coast of Turkey. Item #37730
