An unusual Ottoman geography exercise book, focusing on Asia, was published for students. The publication includes 7 blank maps: the entire continent with mountain ranges, the entire continent with political borders, Anatolia and the north part of the Arabian Peninsula, Persia and neighboring countries, China with Korea and Japan, Russia, India and Southeast Asia.

Each map is not marked with any names and has a juxtaposed chart with pale outlines of the coasts. The maps and charts were supposed to be filled with information, gained from the lectures and literature.

The atlas was, according to the back cover, published separately, as a part of a series of 6 pamphlets with maps of Europe (2 pamphlets), Asia (1 pamphlet), Africa (2 pamphlets) and Oceania (1 pamphlet). The publications had altogether 42 maps and had a sequel pagination.
