Although there's nothing in the LPI's lists for Lacus Perseverantiae, this dark region was frequently photographed during several missions of the Apollo program.
Because of its proximity to crater Firmicus, it is wise to search in the list of all orbital Apollo photographs of Firmicus.
Apollo 17's oblique south-looking Fairchild camera frame AS17-M-1631 shows Lacus Perseverantiae near low-albedo crater Firmicus (near centre of frame).
