Two post card size maps with north and south pole projections, below each map orographic profiles of mountains and oceans, with volcanos. The maps are in Ottoman script prepared by Mehmet EŞREF in a small atlas : عمومولاياةىشهانيىحاوىكوچكاطلاس [Umum-i vilayat-ı Şahaneyi havi küçük atlas/ Small Atlas]. Published in Istanbul by Şirket-i Mürettibiye ve Karacoğlu Matbaası 1325 [1909]

This rare atlas included a 32-page brochure in Ottoman script and 128 maps (some composed of two parts), printed on thick paperand loosely inserted after the text.
Many of the maps of certain areas worldwide are the first and possible only Ottoman maps of those regions.
The atlas appears to be very rare and Worldcat only lists one example (Boğaziçi University Library, Istanbul).
