Chapter Eleven, “The KMMS Ottoman Cluster” looks specifically at the identifying characteristics of one set of map manuscripts named the Ottoman cluster, embedded within the larger set of KMMS maps. Via a reading of the Ottoman cluster this chapter establishes that all copies are a product of a particular time and a particular milieu that can be deconstructed to reveal the sentiments of the illustrator and his/her patron.
