This is a Dutch version, engraved by J. van Schley, of Bellin's map of Arabia and the Red Sea. The emphasis is the coastlines and the interior is primarily left blank. This map is more elaborately decorated with a flourishing title cartouche and a compass rose. The Dutch title is in the bottom margin.
