A delicately engraved map of Iran showing the Persian Gulf and a bit of Iraq. Baghdad is at the left of the map and Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, Kurdistan are named. It is well-detailed with topography, political divisions and scores of towns. An attractive landscape cartouche fills the upper right.
Nice impression on sturdy paper with original coloring. Some toning along centerfold and a couple spots in the blank margins.
