Malham India map from 1804 -

mahlam_india_map

I was offered this map, but passed on it. The only reason it was probably interesting is that it is from Boston. I would prefer to get the 1795 edition that was pritned in London.

I have another Indian map from Boston, so this is not critical

Colored. Very attractive small chart from Malham’s original London edition of 1795 shows the coasts of southern India and Ceylon from the Gulfs of Kutch and Cambay to Bombay and Cape Comorin on the west coast, and from Bengal and the mouths of the Ganges south to the Coromandel coast, Madura and the Gulf of Manar on the east coast. A decorative & colorful compass rose with fleur de lys & radiating rhumb lines appears in the Bay of Bengal & another in the Indian Ocean. A finely engraved and decorative chart.
