Decorative steel engraved map that features three engraved vignettes; a large view of Jerusalem, The Castles of Europe and Asia and four figures with a spire behind, all well colored. The map covers the region of present-day Turkey, Armenia, Syria, Lebanon, Israel, Jordan, and Iraq. Surrounded by a delicately engraved and decorative border.
Lovely impression and coloring. Good margins for this issue, with just the tip of the border trimmed as it rises above the title.
