First edition of John Speed's map of Persia, present-day Iran, from his "Prospect Of The Most Famous Parts Of The World ...", the first British produced atlas of the world. Speed's maps are renowned for their decorative and informative designs and although many copy the continental vogue for cartes-a-figures, this is the only map of the region to be so designed. Here, panels of costumed figures adorn each edge of the map while above are views and plans of the major cities of this important trading nation. Arguably the most decorative map of the country.
