World map. Early 19th-century map of the world with labels in Ottoman Turkish. The colour scheme divides the world into four continents: Europe (pink), Africa (orange), Asia (yellow), and the Americas (green). 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.
