Rare map of the Arabian Peninsula, first published in 1654 and one of the first large maps focused specifically on the Arabian Peninsula. Sanson's map of the Arabian Peninsula continued to influence maps of the region throughout the latter part of the 17th century.
Engraved by Jean Somer.

Arabia is divided into three regions: Arabie Petree, Arabie Deserte, and Arabie Heureuse. There is great detail of mountains and rivers, although there are clear geographical errors, such as the exaggerated extent of the mountain ranges. Numerous villages are depicted, including stopping places on the pilgrimage to Mecca (Iathreb, Badrahenen, Gioffa, and Cadaid, among others), as well as towns that appeared for the first time on a map of Arabia (Hagair, Hadrama, Salamia, and Iamama).
Bahrain is also delineated. The map is adorned with a large columnar style title cartouche.

Nicolas Sanson was to bring about the rise of French cartography, although the fierce competition of the Dutch would last until the end of the century. His success was partly owing to the partnership with the publisher Pierre Mariette. In 1644 the latter had purchased the business of Melchior Tavernier, and helped Sanson with financial support in producing the maps. In 1657 Pierre Marriette died, however his son, also named Pierre, co-published Les Cartes Générales de toutes les parties du Monde the following year. It was the first folio French produced world atlas.
