Description

A detailed and interesting map from McNally’s System of Geography.  This was a favorite book in many homes and schools in post-Civil War America and this is a nice example of why.  Asia is shown with its countries, cities, rivers and railroads.  In the upper left is a map of the middle east and in the lower left an inset of Japan.  Of interest, the map gives an idea of the scale of the area shown by including a map of Ohio on the same scale.
