A large map in Ottoman language represents the Eastern Hemisphere in the time around 1910. Marked are the major sea and train routes.
The highest and most famous mountains of Asia, Africa and Europe, being Himalaya. Kilimanjaro, Mont Blanc and Vesuvius, are showcased in the lower right corner. They are compared to the elevation of the East European Plain (here marked as Russian Plain).
The map was drafted by an Ottoman cartographer Mehmed Abdulkadir Beyin, who was known for his large scale maps, mostly printed in colour and published by Mektep Haritaları Külliyatından (Printing office of documentary maps) for educational purposes.
