Statistical & General Map of India - No. 3.

(Asia, India, Portuguese Colonies, Hyderabad, Bijapur, Bombay).

Issued 1883, London by Letts.

Scarce late 19th century color lithographed map. A late re-issue of the SDUK maps from 40 years prior.

Of particular modern interest for the key, which notes unusual features such as tea plantations, telegraph lines, Portuguese possessions, mountain heights, bridges, and other categories not typically found on maps of this era or region.

Well preserved, clean, nice looking example.

Sheet Measures c. 17 1/8" H x 14" W.
