KATIB CELEBI (Mustafa ibn Abd Allah, aka Hacci Halife). Three engraved maps from the Jihannuma [Mirror of the World]. Constantinople: Ibrahim Mteferrika, 1732.
Three engraved maps: one double-page world map, 308 x 383mm, (faint spotting); one double-page twin hemipshere map, 308 x 383mm, (repaired marginal tear, slightly stained); and one full-page map of the Americas, 198 x 308mm, (light dampstain at extreme margin). Unbound.
The twin hemisphere map has the addition of three inset latitudinal diagrams and a cartouche, not present in the Jihannuma. An earlier version of the worldmap had also appeared in the Tarikh al-Hindi al-Gharbi printed in 1730 by the same printer. Both of the double-page maps derive from the Mercator-Hondius Atlas minor.
