 All maps for this volume have been designed and prepared in the University
of Wisconsin Cartographic Laboratory under the direction of Randall P. Sale,
assisted by Michael L. Czechanski and Carleton Cox. Base information was
compiled from U.S.A.F. Jet Navigation Charts at a scale of 1:2,000,000. Historical
data have been supplied by Dr. Harry W. Hazard (who also compiled the gazetteer)
from such standard works as Spruner-Menke, Stieler, Andree, and Baedeker
for Europe, Levi-Provençal for Moslem Spain, Rubió i Liuch
and Bon for Frankish Greece, and Honigmann, Dussaud, Deschamps, Cahen, and
LeStrange for the Near East. Additional information was found in The Encyclopaedia
of Islam (old and new editions) and Islam Ansik lopedisi, in Yäqut and
other Arabic sources, in The Columbia Lippin cott Gazetteer of the World,
on Michelin and Haliweg road maps, and of course in the text of this volume.
