Palestine, Index to Villages & Settlements, 1947. "Detailed Map / Royal Commission / Partition Boundaries," 39x23". Fine. Printed at lower right: "Compiled Drawn & printed by Survey of Palestine, April 1946," and just under that: "Overprinted by Survey of Palestine May 1947." The Arab State is outlined in red; the Jewish State in green; and mandated enclaves by yellow inside a red border. An inset of Southern Palestine is at upper left. The British Royal Commission, headed by Earl Peel, recommended that the British Mandate of Palestine eventually be abolished, except for a corridor stretching from Jerusalem to the Mediterranean Coast just south of Jaffa, and that the land under the Mandate be apportioned between Arab and Jewish states. The Jewish state would receive a smaller territorial area in the mid-west and north, from Mount Carmel to south of Be'er Tuvia, as well as the Jezreel Valley and the Galilee. The Arab state would receive territory in the south and mid-east, including Judea, Samaria and the Negev desert.
Estimated Value $500 - 750.
