Description:
Important early map of the peninsula showing a new delineation of the coast and one of the first maps to name Oman. This is one of the most important 17th century maps of the Arabian Peninsula. It was published in Paris and comprehensively updated the shape of the landmass as well as including new information provided by French and Dutch mariners who now regularly sailed to India and beyond. All this new information was incorporated onto this map and this ultimately resulted in a substantially altered shape. The influence of this piece was such that it was used as a template for maps of the Arabian Peninsula for the next half a century.
