Map of Persia and Adjacent Countries, for Sir John Malcolm's History of Persia
Sir John Malcolm (1769-1833) was a British soldier, colonial administrator, diplomat, linguist, and historian. He was born in Scotland, left school at age 12, and, through an uncle, secured a position in the East India Company. While stationed in various parts of India as an officer in the company’s military forces, he became interested in foreign languages, which he studied diligently. He became fluent in Persian and, over the years, served as an interpreter and British envoy to Persia in various capacities. In 1815, he published hisHistory of Persia, which earned him an honorary doctorate from Oxford University. This map by Aaron Arrowsmith (1750-1823) was produced for Malcolm’s history. Arrowsmith was one of the premier map publishers of the day. His firm was known for rendering the latest geographical findings into impressively detailed maps. His nephew, John Arrowsmith (1790-1873), took over the firm after his death.
Only Azerbaijan is missing on this map.
Azerbaijan was established in 1918 (100 years ago)
As we see Armenia on this map, it also extends from Western Armenia almost to the Caspian Sea (to Albania), includes Nagorno-Karabakh with the city of Shusha, as well as Nakhijevan.
But Azerbaijan does not, where is he ?.
Yes, there is Azerbijan, but it is the eponymous province of Persia (modern Iran) and is located as always and until today south of the Araksa River.
Unfortunately, the great scientists, historians, cartographers, geographers and engineers at the point of view do not see the "great Azerbaijan" throughout the whole of world history until 1918.
What happened to their vision and hearing.?
Everything is extremely simple - Azerbaijan did not exist until 1918!
It's history and it's a fact!
