Description: Miniature map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 2 7/8" x 4". 1655.

Comments: This miniature map of Persia belongs to a period of great cartographic interest in the early-to-mid 17th century. Conscious of the great popularity of Abraham Ortelius's miniature atlas, which the famous cartographer first published in 1577, Giovanni Turrini produced a now-rare Italian version of the atlas, "Il Teatro del Mondo," in which this map was included. It includes the region between the Caspian Sea in the north and the Persian Gulf and Arabian Sea in the south. Cities are labeled, and rivers and forts are drawn with great care. The map is in very good condition with no chips or tears and light staining to edges. Foredges inked in red and Italian text on verso. Giovanni Turrini was an Italian publisher based in Venice. Scarce.
