Maps of the regions of North America

by Ralph Stockman Tarr and Frank Morton McMurry

compiled by John Conkling.
published in Complete World Geography
The Macmillan Company, 1912
A copy of this book was sent to the US NSA by Ahmad Sohrab, who indicated that 'Abdu'l-Bahá had seen and read the book (source: personal email to John Conkling from Roger Dahl, archivist at the US Bahá'í National Center; date unknown). The significance of this is that the five regions into which Abdu'l-Bahá divided North America when writing Tablets of the Divine Plan — Northeastern states, Southern states, Central states, Western states, and Canada/Greenland — parallel the regions of this book.

Other than rotating these images and converting them from TIF to JPG, I did no digital editing. See an earlier edition of the entire book at archive.org. [J.W., 2010]
