An excellent view, taken from the sea of the gulf city of Aden, in what is today Yemen. Sea Monsters and ships are seen at sea and at anchor, together with those also beached on the shoreline. There is French text below the map, and on the reverse. The title is held in banner form by a winged angel. Many castle like structures are seen on top of the hills. A strong city wall is much in evidence. Published in the popular “Geographia”.
