Rare map documenting the Theater of the Russo-Turkish War.

In 1719, Cornelis Mortier (1699-1783) inherited the publishing business of his father Pieter Mortier (1661-1711). In 1721, Cornelis joined with Johannes Covens the Elder (1697-1774) to form their eponymously titled Amsterdam firm, which would become one of the preeminent publishing houses of the eighteenth century. The firm reprinted and redistributed the maps of major cartographers such as Hubert Jaillot (1632-1712), Jan Jansson (1588-1664), Nicolas Sanson (1600-1667), Frederick de Wit (c. 1629-1706), and, of course, Guillaume De L'Isle (1675-1726).
