EARLY 19TH-CENTURY MAP OF CENTRAL ARABIA, INCLUDING AN EARLY DEPICTION OF RIYADH الرياض.

This map is very similar to "Map of the Nedsjed Country or Central Arabia - Egypt and the positions occupied by the Troops of Mohammed Aly Pacha, in the year 1820", which appeared in An Account of the Transactions of His Majesty's Mission to the Court of Persia in the Years 1807-11, by Sir Harford Jones Brydges in 1834.

William Facey mentions only two European travellers making early reference to Riyadh in their journals, Sadlier and Jombard. Sadlier's map in his Account of a Journey from Katif in the Persian Gulf to Yamboo on the Red Sea, 1823, does not show Riyadh, only Manfufunah. Jombard's Carte comprenant le pays de Nejd ou Arabie Centrale, 1823, does show Riyadh. The city had become the capital of the Second Saudi State in 1823, shortly before this map was drawn.
