Map maker : LAFRERI.

Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :A rare and important map showing the Great Siege of Malta which took place in 1565 when the Ottoman Empire invaded the island, then held by the Knights Hospitaller
The Knights won the siege, one of the bloodiest and most fiercely contested in history, and one which became one of the most celebrated events in sixteenth century Europe.
Voltaire said, "Nothing is more well known than the siege of Malta," and it unquestionably put an end to the European perception of Ottoman invincibility and marked a new phase in Spanish domination of the Mediterranean.
The siege was the climax of an escalating contest between a Christian alliance and the Ottoman Empire for control of the Mediterranean, a contest that included Turkish corsair Turgut Reis's attack on Malta in 1551, and the Turks' utter destruction of an allied Christian fleet at the Battle of Djerba in 1560.

An unique opportunity to acquire a fine example of a map from the early Lafreri school.!
Tooley, 384.
Condition : Cut on the neat line, with added margins. Paper slightly age toned and watermarks.
