MAP MESOPOTAMIA Baghdad BASRA Nasiriyah IRAQ British Victory WW1

An original full page map from a publication dated 1916, not a later reproduction.

It shows the areas of the British lines in Mesopotamia (Iraq); in the north: Khan et Tarmie - Baghdad - Khoramabad; down through Kerbela - Diwanie - Amara - Kut el Amara - Hilla - Shustar in Persia; in the south Nasiriyeh (Muntifik) - Lake Hamar - Basra - Muhammera - etc.

The caption describing the map mentions General Townshend - Gen. Aylmer - Gen. Kemball - Gen. Sir John Nixon - Lt. General Sir Percy Lake. (ref. 92)

The page overall measures approx. 275 x 200 mm (10.75 x 7.75 inches). The map is suitable for framing. There is unrelated, yet interesting text on the reverse titled The Permanence of Sea Power etc. There is a little age yellowing otherwise it is in a good clean condition. It is dated, with the provenance on the right border. This item will be packaged in a board backed envelope.
