Original antique copper engraving, uncolored. Early engraving of Tarku in the Republik of Dagestan, published in „Viel Vermehrte Moscowitische und Persianische Reisebeschreibung" by Adam Olearius. In the scene we see soldiers and hills with different buildings, underneath is a description of the parts numbered „A-G". Adam Olearius (actually Oehlschlegel or Ölschläger; baptized September 24, 1599 in Aschersleben; † February 22, 1671 at Gottorf Castle, today in Schleswig) was a German writer, scholar and diplomat. He was buried in the Trinity Church in Schleswig. Adam Olearius was the son of the tailor Adam Oehlschlegel and his wife Maria Porst. He grew up in simple circumstances. Nevertheless, in 1620 he managed to enroll in theology at the University of Leipzig. He also studied philosophy and mathematics. In 1627 Olearius was awarded the title of Master of Philosophy and five years later, in which he taught first at the Nikolaischule and then at the Thomasschule, he was promoted to assistant at the philosophy faculty in Leipzig. He was also supported as a member of the Minor Princely Foundation.
