Note 1 map : colour ; 49 x 58 cm, on sheet 51 x 60 cm. Map hand coloured. Near the right edge, there appears to be some small bits of brown paper stuck to the surface of the map. There are two wormholes on the bottom edge. Also on the bottom edge, in pencil, is the text probably added at a later date “50077 about 1700-1730". The top edge appears to have been trimmed since on the verso the handwritten title, Constantinopel, has been partially cut off. Below the title on the verso is a number 7? and Hom. Relief shown pictorially. Depths shown by soundings on the map.
