The map above has been extracted from the 1912 compilation of The National Geographic Magazine. It was part of a lengthy pictorial essay that detailed the devastating 1911 eruption of Taal Volcano, among the most violent on record.

In the magazine edition, the map above was labeled: “Map showing area of devastation by the last eruption of Taal Volcano and also the towns destroyed by the previous eruptions.”

Below, extracted from the adjoining page, is a second map with this caption: “Map of the region affected by the great eruption of January 30, 1911.”
