Beautiful steel engraved map with Tallis' lovely vignettes and scroll borders. The Syrian map includes all of present day Syria, Lebanon, and Israel, with a bit of Turkey and Cyprus. Vignettes include Jerusalem, a camel caravan and Arab people. The map was drawn and engraved by J. Rapkin with H. Warren & J. Rogers engraving the borders and vignettes.
Stunning, early impression. Professional repair along centerfold with no evidence of damage. Two mirrored worm holes in blank margin at left, well away from map image.
