Description

Fine map of the region between the Pesian Gulf and Northeastern Africa, published by Jan Elwe.

The map is originally based upon the work of the French Royal Geographer Guillaume Sanson.

The map is centered on Egypt and the Red Sea.  The "Golphe Persique" (Persian Gulf) is named, with the "I de Bahrein shown, but not Qatar.  A town in the approximate location of Abu Dhabi is marked as “Julphar” or “Giolffar."  

In Egypt, early trding routes are shown.

Excellent detail throughout, including Kingdoms, cities, roads, rivers, mountains, islands etc. Includes Cyprus and much of the Eastern Mediterranean. Lots of annotations on various regions.

A marvelous collectors map.
