    A twentieth century masterpiece for the region. This large wall map spans from
    the Kabul, Delhi and Lucknow, reaching eastward beyond the Mekong, and
    expanding up beyond the Himalayas to Tashkent, Urumchi and the Gobi desert.
    With color defining the great sweeping change of elevation that ranges from "Sea
    level" to heights above 28,000 ft. As a practical resource it not only notes
    placenames and boundaries, but railroads, "roads suitable for wheels", "other roads
    with pass", "Telegraph line", "Spring", "Well" and even "Place of archaeological
    interest. Halting place".
    This map once owned by U.S. diplomat, and early climbing enthusiast in the
    Himalayas, E.M. Groth. He penned his named several times across the canvas
    backing. Condition is very good. Image size is approximately 37 x 53 (inches)
