A large map of Arabia and adjacent countries. The Hajj caravan routes to Mecca are well marked, and there are numerous observations relating to sources of water when crossing the Arabian desert. Bahrein, "Koueit" (Kuwait), and "Catura" (Qatar) are all marked, although the coastline of the Persian Gulf is somewhat inaccurate, and peninsula of Qatar itself is lacking. The track of the French frigate "La Vénus" is shown on its voyage of discovery in the Red Sea; she later disappeared in a hurricane in 1788
