Cilo (Resko-Buzul) on the southeast; Kahta (Adiyaman), Munzur Mt., Divrigi (Sivas) on the west; the Black Sea on north and Turkish borders to Armenia, Azerbaijan on the east, and to Russia on the northeast. In addition shows in separate little portions, roads, mountains and hills, lakes, and telegraph and post ways and borders in that zone. Not in any libraries and any collection. An attractive map with its huge size and decorative surface. Several toponyms are underlined in red ink. Otherwise a very good example.
