Note:First Dutch translation of this German work (first published in 1772 and 1774-'78). Carsten Nieubuhr (1713-1815) joined the Royal Danish expedition from 1761-1767 to Arabia. His map of Yemen (1773) is famous (engraved by Koning). His accounts are probably the best and most authentic of their day. Though Arabia was his chief concern, his travels extended into Egypt, Persia and Hindustan.
