A handsome map of southern India, extending north to Goa. Detail is primarily confined to the coasts, with numerous place names filling the coastlines. The interior is dominated with mountain ranges and forested areas, although a few large cities and some delicately engraved animals appear as well. Columns of text give information on the history of the region, and a table outlines the various kingdoms and provinces.
A fine impression on watermarked paper with light toning along the centerfold.
