Lovely Ottoman-themed map of the Arabian peninsula, stretching north to include Asia Minor, west to include the Nile and part of Libya, and east to include part of the Persian Empire and the Caspian Sea.

Arabia is depicted with great detail, including caravan routes and wells.

The title cartouche includes figures in traditional Ottoman dress, with one atop a camel.
