About this item

Antique map titled 'Imperii Persici Delineatio'. Old map of the Persian Empire, based upon the writings of the Dutch Orientalist Adriaan Reland.

The cartouche at bottom right is presented in the monument style with a portrait of Reland and the female personifications of Asia and Fame. Also includes a dedicatory cartouche to Nicolas Witsen. Condition:
Fair, original/contemporary hand coloring. Age-related toning and some wear. Tear along the border of 'Sesjista', blank verso. Please study image carefully.
