Rare map in this condition
Beautiful and stunning folio map of Arabia and the Red Sea. So finely engraved by Menzies it manages not only to depict the relief of the mountains but by excellent stippling shows the sandy desert.
The main caravan routes across Arabia are shown along with early depiction Of Kuwait Kueit, Bahrain, Qatar Catura, etc. The Red Sea coast with Jeddah Mecca and Medinah and the routes from Africa are much more accurate.
Oner of the great maps of Arabia in original colour.
This is the first edition of the map and therefore is a crisp and strong impression.
