"An Historical Atlas of Islam" by William C. Brice was originally published by Brill in 1981.

This unique publication provides an overview of Islamic history from its inception up to the beginning of the twentieth century.
Through the Islamic Heritage Project (IHP), Harvard University has cataloged, conserved, and digitized hundreds of Islamic manuscripts, maps, and published texts from Harvard’s renowned library and museum collections. These rare—and frequently unique—materials are now freely available to Internet users worldwide. IHP is made possible with the generous support of Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal.
