A map of Europe and Asia between Britain and India, with the Mediterranean coast of Africa, Egypt and Nubia. An inset map shows the sea route around the Cape of Good Hope to China and Australia. The title gives clues to the double purpose of this map: firstly the routes to India only four years after the opening of the Suez Canal; and, secondly, highlighting the threat of Russia to Britain's possession of India, the so-called 'Great Game'. Russia had been acquiring territory in Central Asia, pushing south through the Caucasus, Tartary and Bukhara to the northern borders of Afghanistan (here 'Caubul'). Such was the climate of apprehension that two years after this map was published the Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-80) broke out because Russia merely sent diplomats to Kabul!
