JORDAN. The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan. Scale 1:250,000. [Amman], Compiled & Drawn by Department of Lands & Surveys of the Jordan, 1949-57.
Complete set of colour-lithographic maps covering the Kingdom, each map dissected into 16 sections and linen-backed for folding; the unfolded maps measuring from c. 67 by 64 to 87 by 56 cm; very clean and fresh.
The sheets are named after the main cities in the centre, Amman, Karak, Ma'an, and Jerusalem, the largest sheet. These maps cover the stomping ground of Glubb Pasha, who led and trained Transjordan's Arab Legion between 1939 and 1956, and got into trouble with the Ministry of Defence.
