This is a fine reproduction map of Egypt and Arabia Petraea.
A very detailed map with many places named along the Nile river, it has exquisite vignettes of Alexandria, Ruins of the Great Temple, Great Sphinx, and Mosque of Sultan Hassan.
Construction on the Suez Canal, which would connect the Mediterranean with the Red Sea, began in 1950, eight years after this map was published.
Drawn and engraved by J. Rapkin with the vignettes by J. Marchant & J. B. Allen, and published in John Tallis’s Illustrated Atlas.
