Statistical & General Map of India - No. 8.

(Asia, India, British Raj, Bengal, Mouths of the Ganges River, Calcutta, Tea Plantations, Telegraph Lines, Lighthouses).

Issued 1883, London by Letts.

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

Of particular modern interest for the key, which notes unusual features such as tea plantations, French possessions, ruins and light houses, bridged roads, various political states, 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.

Engraved Area Measures c. 15 1/4" H x 12 1/8" W.
