This is a fine example of Adam and Charles Black's 1870 map of the principal counties of the Ancient World. The map displays part of the empire of Alexander the Great and covers from modern day Italy south as far as Egypt and from Corsica to Caspian Sea.
An inset map in the lower left quadrant illustrates the Roman Empire in its greatest extent, another map in the lower right quadrant features the Persian Empire in its greatest extent, divided into its Satrapies.
The map illuminates the conquests of the Macedonian King Alexander III, called ‘the Great,' conqueror of the Persian empire and at just thirty, ruler of one of the largest empires in history. Towns, cities, mountains, rivers, oases and several other topographical details are noted with relief shown by hachure.
This map was engraved by William Hughes and issued as plate no 56 in the 1870 edition of Black's "General Atlas of the World".
