Title : Persia Sive Shahistan..
Map maker : FALKNER, G..
Date : London, 1747.
Size : 10.6 x 14.8 inches. / 27.0 x 37.5 cm.
Colouring : Coloured.

Description :

Map of ancient western and southern Asia. The map is centered on Persia, but extends from Cyprus to east of the Ganges and as far north as the Caspian Sea. It uses the names of Classical times, thus "Arabia Felix," the Malaysian Peninsula is "Chersonesus Aurea." It includes nearly all of India and part of Ceylon / Sri Lanka, here called "Vertex Taprobane."

One could mark out Alexander the Great's ten-year campaign through Asia on this map, from his landing on the shores of Lebanon ("Phoenicia") to the Persian capitol at Persepolis and ultimately to the Indus River and the difficult return along the shores of the Indian Ocean ("Mare Erythraeum").

Published in 1747 for the "Universal History" by Osborn and Shipton, London, as a foldout map complementing the history of the ancient Persians.

Condition : In good condition. Originally issued with two folds, the map has now been flattened.

ID: 94478
