CERCEAU, Jean-Antoine du [attributed]
1742 History of PERSIA Revolutions Nader Shah Kouli Khan Iran MAP Middle East 2v
Paris: Briasson, 1742. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. Jean-Antoine du Cerceau was a 17th-century French Jesuit poet whose works were quite popular amongst noble courts. He is best known for his poems, plays, and short stories, but he also wrote an important work on the history of the Persian revolutions and the reign of Qoli Khan, the Nader Shah. This work, which is also sometimes attributed to Andre Claustre, covers the history of Iran, Afghanistan, and Persia, religious and cultural customs, and Middle Eastern geography. This book also discusses the reign of Qoli Khan himself, his corrupt power, and the revolts and assassination against him. Note the impressive folding map.
