This is a very nice map of the Arabian Peninsula, here called Arabia Foelix.  Details include topography, the major towns, including Mecca, Medina, Muscat (Mascate), Goa, Surat(te), etc, while the rivers and many islands in the Red Sea are imaginary.  Nice cartouche surrounded by buildings and street scenes together with an apparent meeting in the foreground.
