This copper engraving is from Calmet's encyclopaedic dictionary on all aspects of the history, geography and culture of the Bible and Biblical times. The engraving presents a bird's-eye plan of Nineveh (in present-day Iraq), as described by Diodorus Siculus and Kircherus. Five locations are lettered and identified with a key at top right. Engraved by Matthys Pool.
A nice impression on watermarked paper with wide original margins. There are light damp stains and short tears confined to blank margins.
