The map: Antique map of Turkey and the surrounding region in 1914 at the start of World War I when the borders included areas now claimed by Iraq and Syria. Territories are shown with political boundaries, cities and waterways. Topographic detail is engraved as hachures to represent mountain ranges. This lovely original print, over 100 years old, represents exceptionally fine engraving techniques. The map was drawn in 1914 and published a year later in 1915.
