Large map of the southern part of India and Sri Lanka. The map is filled with detail of topography, roads and cities. Colonial possessions are represented by little flags. The title is emblazoned onto the blanket draped over a large elephant that is surrounded by people displaying the wealth of the region.
Some extraneous creasing, else very good.
