Monuments of Historic Cairo

A Map and Descriptive Catalogue

Nicholas Warner

A Publication of The American University in Cairo Press

Comprising thirty-one maps reproduced at a metric scale of 1:1,250 and a full descriptive catalogue, The Monuments of Historic Cairo marks the first time that the city's significant architectural heritage has been mapped in ground plan within the present-day urban context. The work surveys an area of nearly six square kilometers, stretching from the city's northern walls southward to the Mosque of Ibn Tulun and the Citadel.
