Abstract

Suez City (top of map), in the northeast of Egypt, has been inhabited since at least the 7th century AD. Today, it has a population of 500,000 and sits at the southern end of the Suez Canal, named for the isthmus through which it was constructed. The Canal, built from 1859 to 1869, connects the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and obviates the need to sail the treacherous seas around the bottom of Africa. This map illustrates French author, smuggler, and adventurer, Henry de Monfried’s work Hashish – one of 70 works written by the opium addict and Islamic convert. De Monfried (1879-1974) bought a consignment of hashish in Greece and transported it to Egypt via Somalia, the Suez Canal, and a band of Bedouin nomads.
