Description: Antique map, titled: ‘Plan de la Citadelle de la Ville de Charedsch.’ – Plan of the fortress of Charedsch, Iran / Persia.


This original antique print originates from ‘Reize naar Arabie en andere omliggende landen, van Carsten Niebuhr uit het Hoogduitsch vertaald.’, published in Amsterdam by S.J. Baalde and Utrecht by J. van Schoonhoven & comp., 1776. (Translation: Voyage to Arabia and surrounding countries by Carsten Niebuhr, translated from German.) This is the Dutch ed. translated and enlarged from ‘Reisebeschreibung von Arabien und anderen umliegenden Landern (1774-1778).
