   M-12633 - Perrsia, Armenia, Turkey & Arabia in the 1730's




M-12633: (Image: 18 7/8 x 22 1/4'') ''NOVA PERSIAE ARMENIAE NATOLIAE et ARABIAE...'' Frederick De Witt. Amsterdam: Reinier & Josua Ottens, c. 1730.  Engraved map with original hand-coloring.

This rare Ottens' edition of the De Witt map depicts the region from Turkey and Egypt westward to present-day Afghanistan.  The detail in Arabia is based on Sanson's map of 1654 (one of the largest scaled and best detailed maps of the region until the mid 17th century).Topographical features are shown and most major towns, cities, waterways, mountains and island are located.  One of the few available Dutch maps to mention Armenia in the title of the map and one of the most detailed of the region.

The decorative title cartouche features several exotic Asian animals, Asian figures and a merchant ship.  On the left a mapmaker works atop the scale of miles using dividers and other mapmaking tools.
