ARABIA.... DE PERSIA ANZE ZEE
Cartographer: Pieter Van Der AA
Date: 1707 Leiden
Full Title De Persia anze Zee met de Eylanden Baharem, Queixome en Ormus, tussen Arabie en Persie.
Very attractive and quite scarce early 18th century engraved map.Three figures stand behind the title box which sits atop a distance scale. A small compass rose above the figures, enhances the visual appeal of the map.Mecca is at bottom left, mountain ranges, rivers and islands all seen with an attempt at accuracy. The map illustrates the travels of Diego Lopez De Sequeira, a Portuguese admiral, who was governor of Portuguese India between 1518 and 1522.
Uncoloured as issued .
Very good condition.
