CARTE DES PAYS VOISINS DE LA CASPIENE
Cartographer: COVENS & MORTIER
Date: 1730c Amsterdam
Size: 47*61 cms
Stunning map of the Caucuses. Covering the area from the Black Sea to Tartary and from Russia to Persia, ithe Caspian Sea, and Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Iran, and Turkey.
Very important map and the most detailed map of the region so far produced in 1720.
The Caspian Sea was not mapped accurately until the Russian Carl Verden surveyed it in 1722. It was De L'Isle who first published Verden's map: this version places the new information into the general map of the area. So useful for trade and diplomacy in the eighteenth century.
This is the Covens & Mortier issue of the De L'Isle map.
Cartouche, compass roses Original outline colour ..Beautiful map recommended.
