A large, detailed map of the port of Izmir, Turkey, is based on the surveys from 1834 by Captain Richard Copeland and corrected and annotated, also in manuscript, until 1958. The last printed corrections were made in 1950 and small manuscript additions in pink and grey pencil until 1955. The mounted instructions in Italian language in the upper part are from 1958.
The view of the coastline in the bottom left was made by an English vice-admiral, hydrographer, and geologist Thomas Spratt (1811 – 1888) and the in-set map of Izmir showcases the city in 1949.
