Piri Reis (“Captain Piri) was an Ottoman admiral, navigator, cartographer and geographer. First published in 1521, revised and expanded in 1524-1525, his Kitab-i Bahriye, or Book of Navigation, was one of the most beautiful atlases of its era. It drew upon Arab, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Indian and older Greek sources, including charts personally designed by Christopher Columbus. In its revised edition, it contained 290 maps describing the islands and harbors of the Mediterranean, as well as detailed information on techniques of navigation, the people of each country and city, and their cultures. This leaf is reproduced from The Walters Art Museum’s manuscript, which dates to the late 17th and early 18th centuries.
