South India : bellin 1752


Southern India
Bellin, Nicolaus

Fortsetzung der Karte von Indostan II. Blatt, welche die Halb-Insel in sich begreift. Zur allgemeinen Geschichte der Reisen.

Leipzig, Merkur 1758 [22 x 24,5 cm]
Copper engraving, uncolored as published. Decorative map of Southern India with the neighboring Sri Lanka (Ceylon). With many engraved place names, rivers and mountains. Below the title a small mileage scale. Detailled and interesting map engraved by Bellin after earlier voyages.

I think I have this map, but certainly not with this cartouche. I would have remembered it.
