Although Adriaan Reland never actually traveled to Persia, he was an important Dutch Orientalist who compiled a monumental work documenting previous geographies. The cartouche at bottom right is presented in the monument style with a portrait of Reland and the female personifications of Asia and Fame.
Fine impression and original color with a minor fold separation in the bottom border repaired on verso. The margins have been slightly trimmed but are still ample.
