Arabia'
Antique copperplate map with original outline colour, 1828
Title of map: 'Arabia'
The image below shows an enlarged cross section from the centre of the map to show the level of printed detail:
This is the earliest map we've come across on which Dubai is named (in this case spelled as "D"). The Al Fahidi Fort was built in approximately 1787, and the town itself is first recorded in 1799. By 1822 it was a town populated by some 700–800 members of the Bani Yas tribe; it was unlikely to have been much larger than that by the date of publication of this map (1828).

CONDITION: Good; suitable for framing. However, please note: Minor offsetting
text and/or images from the facing page have left an impression on the print. Please check the scan for any blemishes prior to making your purchase. Virtually all antiquarian maps and prints are subject to some normal aging due to use and time which is not obtrusive unless otherwise stated. I offer a no questions asked return policy - see below.
