A plan of the fleets of the Holy League and the Ottoman Empire at the start of the Battle of Lepanto, on the 7th October 1571. The Christian victory was significant, as it prevented the Ottoman advance towards Rome and Western Europe. It was also the last major sea battle fought between only galleys. This map was published in Camocio's 'Isole famose, porti fortezze e terre marittime sottoposte alla Ser.ma Sig.ria di Venezia', a description of the places claimed as subject to the Republic of Venice. This is an early state, before the addition of a plate number (38) bottom right c.1574.
