New MAP of the SEAT of WAR on the COAST of MALABAR & COROMANDEL, in the EMPIRE of the GREAT MOGOL. Drawn from the Best Authorities
This copper engraved map locates major towns, rivers and mountain ranges. It extends from the Indus River to Tibet, the Kingdom of Asam in the east, and includes Sri Lanka. Finely engraved with a decorative rococo-style title cartouche. The map details Indian Subcontinent and Sri Lanka (Ceylon) after the ousting of the French by the British in 1761 showing prominent settlements, rivers, and relief of known areas. The former French capital Pondicherry is prominent to the south of Madras. There were four maps in this series.
There is no scale bar, and the London is used for the prime meridian; both coordinates and scale were calculated using the map's graticule.
