Armenia (text in Armenian). ARMENIA.

Armenia (text in Armenian).

Ca. 1931.
Map, printed color (red, yellow, blue and brown), 12 1/2 x 13 inches on sheet 23 1/2 x 32 3/4 inches, soiling in upper right margin and panel (this is the outermost panel when the map is folded), light wear at intersections of two folds, none of these faults very noticeable. Overall good to very good condition. A scarce and fascinating item, with text in what I believe to be Armenian script, showing a map of Armenia surrounded by historical and geographical information in color illustrations and text with 5 small inset maps. The verso has text and black and white illustrations. The region of Nakhichevan to which the Armenians had pretensions but which was made a part of the administrative region of Azerbaijan by the Soviets in the early 1920s is clearly mapped as a separate, albeit integrally associated, region. There are elaborate borders on just two sides of the map surrounds, but it does not seem as though anything is missing from the upper or lower edges. Item #38818
