Book drawing. Ernst Herzfeld papers, Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Archives.

One of the largest cities of modern Iran, Isfahan is situated 340 kilometers south of Tehran. Today, Isfahan is most famous for its Islamic monuments and Naqsh-i Jahan Square. The squeezes in the F|S collection are from the façade of Imamzadeh Ismail Mausoleum in the former Jewish quarter, and from the façade of a small tomb in the large Mosque of the Shah (Masjed-e Shah) on the southern side of the Naqsh-i Jahan Square, constructed in the seventeenth century.
