    Syrie Ancienne 8 1/8" X 5 3/8"

    Publishing date is below the map of Canaan and looks like 1823? Can't read the name of the engraver but you could google him, as well.

    Doesn't add much, but Richard Harker Palmer was a specialist as a map engraver.

    The dates for him are late for this work. He flourished mid-19th C. Could be "jr.". It was a time when professions traveled down through a family.

    (He was the son of another Richard Palmer, referred to as Richard Palmer 2, so I guess he'd be Richard Palmer 3.)

    The edom one is Travel in Israel Wilderness is August 1, 1808 The other 2 do not have dates, A couple of days ago I thought I have the book associated with De L'asie was extracted from but my googling does not bring it up now. The book was republished several times, I was hoping to date that one from the publishing date 20200925_135645cc.jpg 20200925_135802.jpg 20200925_135807.jpg
