(Asia, Middle East, Persia, Iran, Afghanistan, Baluchistan, Caspian Sea, Persian Gulf).
Issued 1865, Edinburgh & London by Wm. Blackwood for K. Johnston.
Fine oversize mid 19th century engraved map with original outline hand color. A nice large map of the era with a profusion of small details such as terrain and travel routes not normally seen on maps of this era.
From an uncommon atlas, a monumental folio production which was quite expensive in its day and hence had a relatively small circulation compared to smaller format atlases.
Well preserved, clean, nice looking example with pleasing age patina.
Original center fold as issued. Printed on heavy thick paper, in a tube over 8 ounces, thus international shipping will be more than typical as seen in listing details.

Engraved Area Measures c. 17 1/4" H x 22 1/2" .
