Description

Lithograph in black and blue, mounted in original brown wrappers with lettering, 151 x 74 cm (60 x 29 inches) (soft folds with light age-toning and repaired tiny tears on the crossings, wrappers with tiny tears, overall in a good condition).

 

A rare large map (1,5 m high) of the medieval Constantinople in Greek language was made by an Istanbul-based historian and bookdealer Miltiadis Nomidis. It gives valuable information on the city walls of Istanbul and Christian monuments around it, built from the late antiquity until the Fall of Constantinople in 1453.

This version in Greek language is very rare. We could not find any institutional copies on Worldcat.
