Vintage Arabic-script atlas map of the Middle East, published in Istanbul in 1928. The map shows the Middle East in full, naming locales in Arabic, and showing topography in color. Cities are named throughout.

Four inset maps appear alongside the map. These show the Dardanelles, Istanbul, the Strait of Gallipolli, and Ankara.

The borders delimited on the map are particularly interesting. Qatar is not shown as independent. Yemen has an uncertain border, stretching well into the land now controlled by Saudi Arabia. The Omani border hugs the coastline. Iran is substantially enlarged, and India and Pakistan are united. A Palestinian protectorate is shown.
