Caption: Greece and Turkey. Early 19th-century map of Greece and Turkey with labels in Ottoman Turkish. Places and regions shown include the Black Sea, the Aegean Sea, the Adriatic Sea, the eastern Mediterranean Sea, and the islands of Crete and Cyprus. This map is from 'Cedid atlas tercumesi' (1803), an atlas produced by Tab'hane-yi Humayun and published in Istanbul, Turkey, during the period of the Ottoman Empire. The maps were based on those made by British cartographer William Faden (1749-1836) for his General atlas.
