MARIETTE, Pierre. [A 17th century French map of Cyprus]
Cyprus Insula. Paris: Mariette, c.1660. Original outline colour. 380 x 490mm. Minor creasing at centre fold.
A rare map of Cyprus, based on the map of Jacamo Franco of c.1570, the same source used by Ortelius, Blaeu and Jansson. Mariette has been criticised as just a copyist because of a number of spelling mistakes in the place names, including Nocosia (Nicosia) and Calopetria (Cacopetria). However the Sylvia Ioannou Collection has a printer's proof, printed before the decorative details were engraved, in which careful hand written corrections were made. Although most of the corrections were re-engraved, the two quoted above were overlooked.
