Map of Turkey, Arabia and Persia
John Senex (circa 1678-1740) was an English surveyor, engraver, bookseller, and publisher of maps and atlases. He served as geographer to Queen Anne and was elected to the Royal Society in 1728. Among his many works was A New General Atlas: containing a geographical and historical account of all the empires, kingdoms, and other dominions of the world, published in 1721. This map of the Middle East is one of 34 maps in the atlas. Senex borrowed liberally from the great French mapmaker Guillaume de L’Isle, often simply translating the latter’s maps into English. Senex’s map contains many informative notes, e.g., "In the Desarts are to be Seen the Ruins of many Ancient Citys,” "Wells of good water,” and "Wells of bad water.”
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!
