A rare 1829 John Thomson historical map illustrating the Battles and Marches of Alexander the Great. Centered on the Caspian Sea, the map cover from the Adriatic Sea to Indus River Valley and from Crimea to the Red Sea, including all of the modern day Middle East, as well as Persia (Iran), Afghanistan, Turkey, northern Arabia, Israel / Palestine, Syria, Jordan, Greece, the Caucuses, etc. Route markings show both the marches of Alexander the Great into Persia as well as the voyage of Nearchus, a Navarch (Admiral) under Alexander the Great, from the Indus River to the Persian Gulf. Additional routes noted include the March of Hephestion and the March of Craterus. At the top of the map, three additional maps detail strategies employed by Alexander at three historic battles: The Granicus, Issus, and Arbela (Battle of Gaugamela).
This map was published by James Wyld and John Thomson for Thomson's 1829 New Classical and Historical Atlas. This atlas, and the maps it contains, is quite rare as the OCLC identifies only 3 examples. James Wyld's imprint appears in the lower left making this an exceptionally early example of his work.
