This attractive map of the Arabian Peninsula has simple interior detail, with many cities named along the coastal areas of the Red Sea and Yemen. The Gulf is far less accurate, with Bahrain shown as two islands, with no sign of the Qatar promontory. A large decorative title cartouche adorns the map.
Good impression with original outline color. The map has a few light spots of foxing and some light stains.
