This volume is the second part of a new, 3-volume annotated catalogue designed to record every printed map of Cyprus within a span of 400 years, from ca 1485 to 1885. Along with the image and the technical features of each map, the user can find information on the map’s occurrence and/or reoccurrence in various editions, repositories that hold copies of the map and facts regarding its maker(s) and the context of its production, as well as connections with cartographic prototypes and derivatives. The second volume is devoted to the 17th century, while the first covers the 15th to the 16th centuries and the forthcoming third volume will cover the 18th century to 1885.

Peter Barber –
This is a most handsome production: intellectually top-notch and most handsome to look at and to handle. Its thorough treatment of the individual maps, their makers and the books from which the maps come (and the different editions of the books) mean, I am sure , that the book will have to be referred to in the future even by map historians and collectors who are not primarily interested in the mapping of Cyprus. And that is quite an achievement!
