This miniature map of the Arabian Peninsula is divided into three regions. A number of towns are shown, including Medina and Mecca, but they are placed too far north of their actual locations. A few small rivers are shown along the coasts, and a large mountain range dominates the interior. Adorned with two decorative cartouches. French text on verso.
