This impressive, large-scale map covers all of India and Sri Lanka with fine coastal detail. Includes excellent detail of the river systems, several inland routes, and pictorial topography. Augmented by 8 inset maps including a large Entree du Gange with numerous soundings and shoals identified. Adorned by a decorative title cartouche and six distance scales. Printed on four sheets of heavy paper, joined in two horizontal segments.
A nice impression on watermarked paper with faint offsetting, a few minor spots, and light toning along the sheet edges.
