Recent Acquisitions: Princeton's newest Portolan Map

Feb. 15, 2019

Drawn in Sicily, this 1640 portolan chart lays out sailing routes between many of the major and smaller ports in the Mediterranean.

The chart is a major new acquisition to Hellenic Collections. It will be shown in spring 2019's Welcome Additions exhibition, the first in the new Ellen and Leonard Milberg Gallery. It is also available for digital consultation in Princeton's digital collections. Read more on Princeton Libraries' RBSC Manuscripts Division News blog.
