Manuscript map of Abu Dhabi

[Abu Dhabi]. Geological map of Abu Dhabi.

[Abu Dhabi, 1970s].

Manuscript map, 335 x 330 mm. Black ink on tracing paper.


Drawn by hand: a geological map of the northern part of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, showing the islands of the coastline, sand dunes, plains, and the beginning of a mountainous area in the region of the border with Oman. Small corrections are visible where the cartographer, for example, removed a label in the map key or fixed the lettering of the label of the city of Abu Dhabi. A fascinating glimpse at the process of cartography, and the geological zones Abu Dhabi.

A few minor closed tears or punctures, very subtly repaired.
