Title: Die Statt Constantinopel in Turckey
Scarce panoramic view of the ancient Byzantine capital (Istanbul) viewed from across the Bosphorus from Scutari. A numbered key (1 to 29) at bottom identifies the principal buildings including the famous Hagia Sophia. Quaint scenes of daily life fill the foreground, including several hunters with their hunting dogs. The view appears to be loosely based on Merian's view, but the engraving style is very different.     (id:64245/111-588)
