MAP OF INDEPENDENT TARTARY Containing THE COUNTRIES OF THE KALMUKS and UZBEKS, with the TIBET
Looking closely at this map reveals intersting notations used by Dunn to refer to groups of people or geographical features/regions. Some examples include: "Siah Pushes or Black-Clothes People"; "Ruins of Serai". There seem to be very few places named on the map in use today.
