Engraved map by J. Wyld, geographer to Queen Victoria, with original hand colour, dissected, laid on linen and folded as issued, with original slipcase. There is slight loss to the printed publisher's label. This detailed map shows the Middle East from the Eastern Mediterranean and the Nile, east through Arabia, Persia, the Tartar khanates and Afghanistan, to the borders of China and Burma. The two insets show the waterways of the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles. It shows the land and sea routes to India, but of greater interest is the depiction of the theatre of the first Anglo-Afghan War (1838-42) during one of its pivotal phases. There was competition between Great Britain and Russia for control of the khanates of Central Asia (for example Bukhara), the lands that kept the Russians from threatening the northern borders of British India. At the time this map was published the British had invaded Afghanistan in an attempt to make the country a buffer state. Slight discolouration of backing due to age but an interesting and scarce map.
