This magnificent two-sheet map extends in the north from southeastern Iran across to Bhutan and Assam, and all the way to the southern tip of the Indian subcontinent including all of Ceylon. The Ganges plain and southern India are quite detailed, with hills, roads, and towns. Central India labeled “Mahrattas Dominions” is left rather blank except for a few hills and rivers. The area south of the Ganges plain is labeled “Rajahs and Poligars, little known and in a manner independent.”
Condition: This map is in excellent condition.
