The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 57



Russo-Afghan Boundary Question.—W. & A. K. Johnston's Special Map to elucidate the——. Scale 1:3,550,000 or 48.6 geographical miles to an inch. With an inset map showing the encroachments of Russia from the accession of Peter the Great in 1689 to the present time. W. & A. K. Johnston, Edinburgh and London, 1885.

At the present time, when the Anglo-Russian Commission are about to survey a mutual boundary line, this map is likely to be of great use in following the movements on the Afghan frontier. A glance at the inset map will show the continued advance of Russia towards India during the past four centuries, and the extension of the railway system in the same direction, which at the present time has reached Orenburg in the north, and beyond Kizil Arvat, in Turkistan, in the south. A small inset map is also given, showing British possessions in Asia, Africa, and Australasia, with the distances between them.
