Part of the EAST INDIES

Containing the MOGUL'S EMPIRE

And the Peninsular on this side the Ganges.

by John Lodge Cowley

Published London 1753 by Thomas Cox and James Hodges in;

"A New and Easy Introduction to the study of Geography by way of Question and Answer".

An original 18th century copper engraved antique map of present day India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh enhanced with later hand colouring.

An interesting map showing the Mogul or Mughal Empire and several of the East India Company forts on the Coromandel and Malabar coasts.

A fine example of this very scarce map.

The book itself was originally written as a teaching aid for students by Johann Hubner, a German scholar.

Cowley translated the book into English from high Dutch and added a set of interesting maps to illustrate the work.

Some of the maps bear the signature of Emanuel Bowen and he may well have engraved all of them as they follow a common format, albeit varying in size.

Fine, clean condition, free of repairs or restoration, blank verso. Fold lines as issued.

Approx. 5" x 4.5" (130mm x 110mm) map area only, with margins beyond.

A GENUINE ORIGINAL ANTIQUE MAP GUARANTEED OVER 260 YEARS OLD FROM LINDISFARNE PRINTS
