Catalogue Note

The author came from an old Corfiote family, and a particularly interesting feature of this book is the comprehensive listing of all the prominent Greek families living in Corfu since the island became a Venetian possession in 1216. The maps and plans include a general map, a plan of the fortress of Corfu and a plan of Cherssopolis.
