1793 William Faden Wall Map of India Stationery
One of the largest and most impressive maps of India to appear in the 18th century. Depicts the subcontinent from Bombay ( Mumbai ) and Aurungabad, south including the northern half of Sri Lanka ( Ceylon ). Printed in 1793 in London by William Faden, “Royal Geographer to the King and to the Prince of Wales”. Includes the routes of various military marches and campaigns including the 1784 March of British Prisoners from Condapoor to Madras, the march of the Marquis of Cornwallis, the march of General Medows, and the march of General Abercromby. Also shows the acquisitions of the British through the Partition Treaty of 1792. The whole is masterfully presented in visually stunning almost three dimensional detail and stunning period color. A must for any serious collection of south Asia maps. Compiled chiefly from papers communicated by the late Sir Archd. Campbell, the surveys of Col. Kelly, Capt. Pringle, Capt. Allan, etc. This image (or other media file) is in the public domain because its copyright has expired.
