"The volume is completed by three appendixes (lost or untraced maps of Cyprus; concordance of cartobibliographies of the printed maps of Cyprus; places of map production) and two indexes (maps by title, proper names). While most of the maps listed were known from previous directories, their scientific description is now fully and definitively guaranteed."
- Gilles Grivaud, Imago Mundi: The International Journal for the History of Cartography, Volume 73, 2021 - Issue 2
This volume is the second part of an 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. Volume 1 is devoted to the 15th and 16th centuries, volume 2 to the 17th century while the forthcoming third volume will cover the 18th century to 1885.
