Contemporary German broadsheet maps of the attack on Cyprus are much rarer than their Italian equivalents, and yet were equally important in disseminating the unfolding events for a contemporary audience. We have only been able to trace one institutional copy; that held by Basel Universitatsbibliothek. We are aware of two examples in the trade in the past 40 years; at Sotheby’s, London in 2006 for £142,400, and at Kiefer Buch und Kunstauktionen, Pforzheim in 2008 for €51,920.
