This interesting and detailed map is focused on the Arabian Peninsula, the Horn of Africa (noted as myrrh and incense country), the Red Sea and the Persian Gulf. The map names routes across the Arabian Desert where water is available, and caravan routes across Africa to Mecca and Cairo.
A good impression on a sound sheet with original color and some faint toning on the centerfold.
