Following a short introduction to the printed mapping of Greece in the l5th-l8th centuries, the catalogue of maps occupies the first half of the volume. The maps refer mainly to Greece, but some also include the western coast of Turkey, others Cyprus and the eastern Mediterranean. General maps of South-eastern Europe, the Middle East or the Ottoman Empire are omitted. The catalogue comprises 2173 entries; the maps are listed under the names of their cartographers or publishers, presented in alphabetical order, with cross-references and notes as necessary. The maps are usually mentioned with the full title of their cartouche, and the size of the typographic plates is given in centimetres. The second half of the volume is occupied by an illustrated corpus of 500 photographs of maps selected to provide a representative overview of Greek chorography. Index with numbers referring to maps.
