It is my pleasure to announce the release Podcasting the Ottomans series entitled "Navigating 'the Book of Navigation'." (on SoundCloud and Apple Podcasts). The series was produced by Boston College undergraduates.
The podcast is about the Book of Navigation (Kitab-ı Bahriye), an atlas of the Mediterranean composed by the Ottoman navigator, cartographer, and pirate-turned-admiral, Piri Reis (d. 1553). We used the images of the marvelous manuscript copy (ms. W.658) preserved at the Walters Art Museum, Baltimore.
