A detailed and finely presented map covering Central Asia from The Caspian to Mongolia and of great interest for its strategic significance from ancient times as a focal point for the regions Silk Roads and, contemporary with publication, the site of much of the "Great Game" activity between Russia and European and sub-continent powers. When published the map covered areas of Russia, Turkestan, Persia, Afghanistan, northern India and western China. Now the area is predominantly that of Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan. The map was prepared and first issued by John Arrowsmith, the last of a most illustrious cartographic family, and is here in a revised edition with the impront of Edward Stanford, who had taken over much of the Arrowsmith production. One or two marginal tears backed with tape.
