Petrus Kaerius engraved this early miniature map of southern India and Ceylon. Narsinga, referred to as the Kingdom of Bisnaga by the Portuguese, was the Hindu Vijayanagara Empire that controlled southern India. Dutch text on verso.
Very nice impression with full margins. Show through of text on verso, else very good.
