18th century chart of the Persian Gulf

APRÈS DE MANNEVILLETTE, Jean Baptiste d'.

Carte du Golfe Persique, depuis Bassora jusqua'au Cap Rasalgate.
Paris, c.1775. Coloured. 480 x 670mm.

The Persian Gulf, engraved by Guillaume Dela Haye, naming Bahrain but with no sign of the Qatar Peninsula. The inset shows Kharg Island, the site of a Dutch trading port from 1753-1766, off Bandar Rig in Persia.
Après de Mannevillette (1707-1780), made a voyage to China in 1728, using new instruments to correct the latitudes of places en route. He then compiled a new sea atlas, the 'Le Neptune Oriental', with much-corrected charts. However the Persian Gulf was not a welcoming place for European ships: the Arabian coast is marked 'peu connu' (little known).
