Title: 'Carte De L'Isle De Cypre', issued in the Petit Atlas Maritime volume III.

A rare and charming map of Cyprus.

Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772), Royal Hydrographer, engineer of the French Navy and member of the Royal Society, London....

Very good condition. A couple of minor holes affect the neat-line, also at margin, little foxing at the bottom. Printed on one side only (blank reverse) on strong paper with noticeable plate-mark. Excellent impression.

A fine example of this rather rare map on strong paper with its characteristic contemporary hand-coloring. One for the collector.
