Title: Die Statt Constantinopel im Turkey
This is an extremely rare panoramic view of Constantinople (Istanbul) published by Jacob Koppmayr. The view shows considerable detail of the city. In the foreground and near foreground are soldiers, merchants, a woman and child. At the bottom, there is a numbered key (1 to 29) that is used to identify principal places in the city. These places include the Hagia Sophia, the mosques of "Mahometh" and "Selims", "Iacob Koppmayr" at the bottom right. Koppmayr was a printed and publisher active from 1686 to 1710. Not much is known about Koppmayr. He is known to have produced a map of the Rhine and Mosel in 1689. It appears that this view is taken directly from the Merian view of 1635.     (id:67844)

The view was trimmed to its edges and mounted onto larger old paper. The view seems to have been folded at some time in the past. The two folds are solid. Separation to the left of the left side fold and several at bottom.
