National Geographic

This detailed map of Asia and adjacent areas accompanied two articles in National Geographic Magazine in March of 1951: "Yankee Roams the Orient" and "The Caves of the Thousand Buddhas." Published during the Cold War between the US and the USSR, and shortly after China had annexed Tibet, this map offers a peek into Asia's past.
