Il regno tutto di Candia

Il regno tutto di candia Peacay stumbled across a relatively new addition to Princeton’s digital collections, Il regno tutto di Candia. Abstract: “This work was published in Venice in 1651, three years after the Ottomans first tried to occupy the island of Crete, Venice’s last important trading foothold in the eastern Mediterreanean. Intended to raise European and Papal support for the Venetian defense of Crete, the carefully engraved maps show exquisite craftsmanship.” 70 pages scanned.
