Desciption De l’ Empire Du Sophi Des Perses…
c1650., Paris: 1650 - Copper engraved map, double page (24" x 18"), hand colored in outline, uncolored title cartouche. Some dampstaining in right margin, just into image, but hardly noticeable, a couple of old small creases, some creasing at centerfold, wide margins, slight aging and browning; overall very good and with nice impression. Samson (1600-1667) is often referred to as the father of French cartography. Louis XIII was impressed with his work and appointed him "Geographe Ordinaire du Roi". During his career Sanson would produce about 300 maps, and his major atlas "Cartes Generales de Toutes les Parties du Monde" would represent an important part of his body of work. While two of his sons continued publication of his maps after his death, Pieter Schenk (1655-1718), an important publisher and engraver in his own right, published this map. The map is attractively colored and gives a detailed view of the empire of Persia that stretches from the Arabian Desert to the Mongolian Empire. Bagrow p. 185. map list website.
