NagaPatam :Nagapattinam antique map bird’s eye view 1744

nagapatam_1744

Early on I realized that I enjoyed the maps a lot more if I had some personal connection with the place. So very often I would encounter detailed map of a city, but I would pass on it because I didn’t feel connected to it.

Antique map (copper engraving) of a bird’s-eye view of Nagapattinam, India from Churchill’s ‘A Collection of Voyages and Travels, some now first printed from original manuscripts others now first printed in English’, printed in 1744 for Henry Lintot and John Osborn, London. (first edition was in 1672)
