Persian Gulf. Umm al Qaiwain to Ras al Matbakh. From the latest information in the hydrographic department to 1934
1947. Large engraved chart, measuring 1402 by 714mm. Scale 1:330,000. Several small dents to margins, some very light spotting, annotations in blue pencil to verso, otherwise very good. Block correction pasted onto section of chart. London, Admiralty, 14th April 1939, with printed corrections to A rare Admiralty chart of the coast from Umm Al Quawain (UAE) to Ras Matbakh (Qatar). It shows Sharjah, Dubai, Abu Dhabi and almost the entirety of the United Arab Emirates coastline (then called the Trucial Coast). The east coast of Qatar is also present, with a printed block correction updating the section including Doha and Al Wakrah. Despite the impressive detail, the text beneath the title urges circumspection: ?This chart should be used with great caution, as except in the vicinity of Jezirat Yas and Sharjah, it is compiled from old and imperfect surveys [likely those undertaken by G. Brucks and S. Haines (1821-29), and C. Constable and A. Stiffe (1857-60)].?
