Superb map of the region of present-day Syria, Iraq and the Kurdish region of Turkey. The map is well engraved with excellent detail in D'Anville's simple, scientific style. It shows cities, villages, ancient ruins, rivers, mountains, watering places and much else of interest.
Nice impression with faint soil in wide margins.
