Beautiful, detailed map focused on the Arabian Peninsula filled with many place names, such as Oman and Mecca. Yemen (Hyaman) is noted across the entire Arabian Peninsula. Much of the cartography is spurious with several mountain ranges delineated. The map is graced with a strapwork cartouche. Engraved by Anthony de Winter and published by Francois Halma.
