Compiled by Ashley Baynton-Williams and edited by Artemis Scutari. This volume is the first part of a new 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. Thanks to the detailed comparative descriptions given in this cartobibliography, it is now easier to identify the editions from which some maps of the island were removed, now surviving separately in private or public collections. The first volume is devoted to the 15th and 16th centuries, while the forthcoming second and third volumes will cover the 17th to the 19th centuries.

Volume 2 is expected to be published at the end of 2017/early 2018 and Volume 3 is expected at the end of 2018/early 2019.
