This attractive map of the sub-continent is dense with interesting detail. Political divisions, towns and cities, rivers, and topographical detail are shown. The Lakshadweep archipelago and the northern part of Sri Lanka appear. At bottom right, a striking, pictorial cartouche features an Indian village with houses of worship and elephants.
A dark impression with a few tiny, unobtrusive spots and toning confined to the sheet's edges.
