Map of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, a titular see (nonfunctional diocese) of the Eastern Orthodox Church. Depicts the area from Greece and Macedonia in the east to the edge of the Caspian Sea in the west. Detailed labels indicate major regions, topographic features, and cities. Includes the Black Sea (Pontus Euxinus), the Aegean Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, Turkey, Crete, and Cyprus.

Pierre Mariette (I) (1596-1657) founded one of the most prominent and long-lasting publishing houses in France. His son Pierre (II) (1634-1716), his grandson Jean (1660–1742), and his great-grandson Pierre-Jean (1694-1774) would all follow in his footsteps as engravers, publishers, and booksellers.
