Comments: Beautiful and rare map of northern Anatolia in Turkey, circa 1708. Detailed and animated cartouche. Paphlagonia is the ancient area along the southern coast of the Black Sea. Full original margins, light scattered foxing. Based on earlier plates by Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667), who is considered the founder of the French school of cartography. In reaction to the prevailing trend of Dutch lavishness, Sanson favored minimal details, focusing rather on accurate cartography than ornament.Binding: unbound
