Hedendaagsche historie of Tegenwoordige staat van alle volkeren IV. deel. Behelzende [...] Persia, Arabia, en het Asiatisch Tartaryen
Amsterdam: Isaak Tirion, 1732. The spine and edges have a little rubbing to them -but not too much. Slight creasing to the spine, and the gilt is somewhat faded. The newer end papers are somewhat darkened - but the original pages are in good clean condition. The maps and plates are in lovely condition. One is detached but still neat and present. . Part Four of Salmon's seminal work. First edition of the Dutch translation of Salmon's work dealing with Persia, Arabia and Tartary. Translated and much enlarged by Matthias van Gogh. A very nice copy. simple red leather spine, and red marbled boards. (more recent than the book - probably 19thC). With engraved title-page, 3 engraved maps and 9 engraved plates (7 folding). The 3 large folding maps depict Persia, Arabia and Tartary and the illustrations include a Persian hunting scene and a view of the Kaaba in Mecca.
