Abstract from The geographical journal, no. 3, vol. XXXV. Transcript of a presentation held at the Royal Geographical Society, January 24, 1910, by Middle-East-explorer Douglas Carruthers (1882-1962). He traveled the region that is now Jordan and north-west Saudi Arabia in an attempt to survey the land survey for latitudes and waterways. He also shows an anthropological interest by describing and depicting several Bedouin tribes, which he includes in his map. The tribal names are placed on the map in the regions where they were at the time of the journey.
