WERNER, Friedrich Bernhard.

Constantinopolis.
Augsburg: Georg Balthasar Probst, c.1760. Coloured. Two sheets conjoined, total 385 x 1045mm.

An unusual variant of Werner's prospect of Constantinople, engraved with new details, including larger figures as staffage, some oddly scaled. Beneath the panorama there is a key to the most prominent buildings of the city in Latin and German. A fine example.
