Description (Steel engraving, 650x960 mm.) This very interesting map is an example of the adaptation of elements from Kitchener’s map of Cyprus, published in 1885, to the nautical chart of Cyprus constructed by Graves and first issued in 1851. Graves’ chart contained very little information on the interior of the island. It was first published in this form by the Admiralty in 1892. A later edition appeared in 1913 with some changes in the insets.
