TURKEY in EUROPE, from the best AUTHORITIES
A map of Turkey and some other portions of the Ottoman Empire's vast territory at the time. The continental boundary is marked by a broken line running through the Bosphorus. The Danube is marked as a single line with a heavy weight, and the Carpathians and other mountain ranges are shown by light hatching. Non European Turkey, and territories not directly controlled or acting as vassals to the Ottomans are ghosted out. Shows that part of the Balkan Peninsula occupied by the Ottoman Turkish invaders. Relief shown pictorially. Title in ovoid cartouche at lower right.
The scale bar is in British miles, and London is used for the prime meridian; the scale was calculated from the scale bar and the coordinates from the map's graticule.
