The original edition was used to illustrate the 1924-27 Report of the Public Works Department. This edition was subsequently produced with added notes. "The notes were therefore, collected and written after unofficial contributions and suggestions had been obtained from a few officials of other departments, or from Commercial Firms." It appears to be an invitation for visits, trade and tourism. The Maps are: Northern Iraq: Roads Upper Central Iraq: Roads. Lower Central Iraq: Roads. Southern Iraq: Roads. Trans Desert Routes [of Iraq]. Environs of Baghdad. Environs of Basrah. Ancient Sites of Iraq.
