A sheet including 11 charts of Bays and anchor places along the coasts of Yemen, east coast of the Arabian peninsula and Egypt. One of the early maps to focus on this area. An impressive large sheet chart including the Red Sea, the coasts of Somali, Yemen, east coast of the Arabian peninsula.
Some cities existed along the western coast of the Arabian peninsula, where they served as entrepots for transcontinental trade between Europe and Asia. Mecca, founded by the Umayyad clan of the Quraysh tribe, was the most important of these Arabian cities.

With inset of the island and the Fort of Monbaca. Numerous place names, soundings and sand banks are shown round the island and the regions are defined in original body colour.
From Mortier's Neptune François , one of the most spectacular cartographical works ever produced. According to Koeman: ...the most expensive sea-atlas ever published in Amsterdam ... Its charts are larger and more lavishly decorated than those of any preceding book of this kind. For the engraving and etching Mortier had recruited the most qualified artists. This magnificent work was intended more as a show piece than something to be used by pilots at sea.
