Description

Large map of Yemen from "Allgemeiner grosser Atlas" published by P. J. Schalbacher - 1786-1800. Based on the observations of the Danish explorer Carsten Niebuhr and shows the eastern shore of the Red Sea just to the north of Jizan. Numerous towns, cities, and Wadis are shown interlaced in the dense hachuring to suggest topography.
The Red Sea is filled with three compass roses, fleur-de-lis and rhumb lines. In the lower left an index gives latitude and longitude for the major cities.
At upper right is an elaborate title cartouche with three distance scales below.
