The second map shows the Arabian Peninsula and its railroads; an inset shows the Suez Canal (with the date of its completion given as 1869 CE and 1285 Rumi calendar).

A soft central fold and tiny edge tears. Traces of former tab-mounting within an atlas; handwritten Ottoman Turkish titles in black ink on verso.
