Johnson's Asia by Johnson & Browning (p82) circa 1860


The full map of Asia
zoom updated 2/27/07

From this map we can see how Asia was divided in the mid 19th century.  We have the Russian Empire, Chinese Empire, Turkey, Arabia, Persia, Cabool, Toorkistan, Hindoostan, Birmah, Siam, Anam, and the Japan Islands.

An interesting high school geography project might be to track how the spelling of names changes (and why): Bagdad to Baghdad, Corea to Korea, Anam to Viet Nam etc.

Another project might be where have mountain ranges shaped political boundaries?  Why did the the boundary between the The Ottoman Empire and Persia end up being pretty much the same as the boundry between Iraq and Iran?

If anyone needs to see finer detail in this map for any project just let me know ... i can put up higher resolution scans of any particular part.  The full map is about 15" x 12" from border to border.  It is page 82 of the Johnson & Browning atlas.
