Book Description

Black & white lithographic sketch map, folio, 384 x 600mm, folded. Kenya, Government Printer Nairobi, n.d. but [pre-1960].
Dealer Notes
A curious sketch map, covering the whole of the Arabian Peninsula & Persian Gulf, specifically noting Sharjah, Qatar and Kuwait. Probably from a governmental handbook or report, it reaches as far north as the Levant (unlisted), west to Sudan and south to Tanganyika, including an unlisted Zanzibar.

Whilst undated, this cataloguer is confident it is pre-1960 due to the reference of the Somaliland Protectorate. This changed it's name post-independance to Somalia during this decade.

Rare. Unlisted as World or Jisc as a standalone map.
Date pre-1960
Binding n/a
Publisher Government Press, Nairobi
