A finely engraved small map of Persia and the Gulf, with a vignette inset at the lower left corner of the English traveller Anthony Shirley at the Court of the Emperor. In 1598 Sherley travelled to Persia, where, falsely representing himself as an English envoy, he gained some trading privileges. On returning to Europe a few years later as the shah's envoy, he visited various European courts attempting to arrange alliances with Persia against the Ottomans. An account of Sherley's Persian travels was published in London in 1613.
