Mallet miniature map 1719

A few years ago, a friend of mine (hi Neeraj!) needed some legal work to be done. I wrote up the contracts etc for him, more as a favor and in appreciation he got a few maps for me. A couple of Belin maps and a couple of Mallet miniature maps. Sweet.

Only recently I learned of a series of other pictures and maps of India that Mallet published. And the map that I really want is that of Agra. I think I bid on it once, but didn’t get it; I am sure I was lowballing it.

These are really small maps; less than half of a letter page, so they are not that impressive or anything, but they are cute and pretty.

Copper-engraving, handcolored in wash and outline. Decorative engraved map showing the Indian subcontinent with the neighbouring countries in the Indian Ocean
