Beautiful, detailed map focused on the Arabian Peninsula filled with many place names, such as Oman. Much of the cartography is spurious with several mountain ranges delineated. The map was engraved by Antoine d'Winter, and it is graced with a delicate cartouche.
Sharp impression with some toning in margins.
