Arabiae Felicis, Petraeae Et Desertae : J. Jansson

click here to view a large version in a separate window

Jansson's map of Arabia is one of the most decorative of the region from the so-called "golden age" of Dutch cartography in the seventeenth century. Geographical detail for the interior is fanciful - there are illustrations of camels, elephants and fighting lions - yet fascinating. Mecca and Medina are clearly named and are shown to be major cities, along with Zibith, Mocha, Fartach, Gubelhaman, Albinali, Massa and Mascalat. A decorative title cartouche appears in the lower left corner, supported by cherubs and figures in traditional dress. The mileage scale appears in the opposing upper right corner. A good example of a scarce map - one of the most attractive and largest scale maps of Arabia of the period.
