This striking map of the Persian Empire includes present-day Iran, Iraq, Armenia, Georgia, Afghanistan, and part of Pakistan. Two large pictorial cartouches graphically depict the cultural attainments of the empire. The map is filled with detail of towns, mountains, forests, caravan routes, and a quaint village scene is pictured in the Turkistan region.
Sharp impression with original color. There is an old paper repair on a short fold separation at bottom and a stain and worm track in the right margin border area.
