Title : Tarku Urbs Tartaroum in Dagestan ad mare Caspium..
Map maker : OLEARIUS, A. / KOCH, O..
Date : Hamburg, 1696.
Size : 7.9 x 9.4 inches. / 20.0 x 24.0 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured.

Description :An early town-view of Tarku, in the Republic of Dagestan. From the scarce Hamburg edition "Viel Vermehrte Moscowitische und Persianische Reisebeschreibung" by Adam Olearius.
Underneath the copper engraving we find an interesting description of the scene printed in letter press prepared by Paul Fleming.
The engraving was done by Christian Rothgiesser.

Adam Olearius was a seventeenth-century German scholar, employed as secretary to an embassy sent by the small German state of Holstein to explore an overland trade route with Persia. The first embassy was dispatched to Russia in 1633-34 to secure the tsar's permission to travel and ship through his realm.
The second was sent in 1635 to complete the deal with the king (shah) of Persia. Although the commercial mission failed miserably, the embassy was successful in the incredible amount of information gathered by Olearius.
After returning to Holstein in 1639, Olearius continued in the Duke's service and published the first edition of his travels in 1647.
In 1656 he released a second, enlarged edition which became very popular throughout Europe and within a few years was translated into Dutch, French, Italian and English.

Condition : Copper engraving (200x240mm.) and letter press.

ID: 34003
