Turkish Map of America  (Decorative Manuscript Map)

Decorative manuscript map of America, showing California as an island, with decorative embellishments.

Maps of this type are typically hand drawn for tourists in Istanbul, using old paper which frequently includes earlier manuscript writing in Turkish.

While made to appear old, the maps are in fact modern tourist curiosities, but beautifully executed and certainly beautiful objects.

For an example of the earliest map of America printed in the Ottoman Empire and a brief essay on early map printing in the Ottoman Empire, click here: /gallery/detail/29971
