Nicely engraved map with Arabia figuring prominently. Map includes Turkey and the Black Sea, extending to include the Caspian Sea and the region of today's Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, etc. Decorated with fancy title cartouche.
Good impression on thick hand laid paper. Original outline color in map with later color in cartouche. One small flaw on verso with thinning paper not visible from map side.
