Mathematician, cartographer and research traveler Carsten Niebuhr (1733-1815), active in Denmark since 1760, was sent in 1761 by Frederik V. of Denmark as a cartographer with a six-headed expedition to Arabia. After six years, he returned to Denmark as the only survivor of this malaria-diagnosed research group. In 1772 his 'Description of Arabia' appeared in Copenhagen, which followed further volumes (partly posthumous). -
