Persian Gulf; Atlas Of Old & Historical Maps 3000 B.C. - 2000 A.D. Published

 

03 June 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- A careful review of the existing old and historical maps from about 3000 B.C to 2000 A.D in 2 volumes, by Mohammad Reza Shaba has been published.

 

The book can well serve as a documented account and a major source for Persian Gulf studies. 

 

The is a product of precisely such a study, based on a chronological account of available atlases and authentic sources, selected and compiled by reputable scholars. Four periods were taken into consideration for the classification of this atlas. 

 

The maps of the Persian Gulf as well as the maps of the eastern hemisphere were essentially divided into four categories as follows: 1. Antiquity (since 3000 B.C) 2. The Islamic period and Middle Ages (8th to 15thcentury A.D.) 3. The Renaissance (16th through 18th century A.D) 4. The Modern Era(19th through 20th century A.D) 

 

By collecting over 2,300 maps from museums, libraries, private collections, as well as other records, we have created a valuable archive of old and historical maps for Persian Gulf studies.
