About this item


Map published by the Royal Geographical Society. From the Geographical Journal, September 1931.

The map depicts Bertram Thomas's 1930-31 route, and earlier routes, in red. The map indicates settlements, hydrology, and also provides some indication of relief. Also included is a table of reference for symbols used on the map.

The map includes two additional lines: a line in black ink marked 'blue line' (a boundary line that formed part of the non-ratified Anglo-Ottoman Convention of 1913, and was redefined and adopted in the Anglo-Ottoman Convention of the following year), and a line in pencil outlining the suggested limits of a 'desert zone', which was considered by the British as a possible territorial concession to Saudi Arabia.

Another edition of this map can be found at IOR/R/15/2/159, f 246.
