    Chart of the South East Coast of Arabia from Ras Sukra to Palinurus Shoal, compiled from trigonometric Surveys.

    Engraved chart of Oman, 112 x 68 cm, engraved by John and Charles Walker, black and white (key information highlighted in pink wash), vertical and horizontal folds, some light marginal soiling and one or two short nicks and tears.

    First published in 1860 with corrections to 1924, covering the coast from Palimurus Shoal in Yemen to the Khorya Morya islands and Ras Sukra in Oman, showing sands and soundings, lighthouses and beacons etc; reference notes on tides; inset maps of Bander Reisut, Merbat Bay and Kishin Bay and two coastal profiles. A controversial figure, Haines made his name surveying the Persian Gulf and became the first British adminstrator of Aden.
