Terre Ferme de L'Inde ou L'empire du Mogol.

(Asia, India, Mughal Empire, Ceylon, Sri Lanka).

Issued 1683, Paris, for A.M. Mallet. 

Charming 17th century copper engraved map with lovely hand color.

Great large cartouche with figures on either side placed over Ceylon.

The image has a near folk-art feel, a style unique to this historical era. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this reason.

Mostly clean and well preserved example, the image displays a fine patina.

Sheet measures c. 7 7/8" H x 5 7/8" W.

Printed area measures c. 5 1/2" H x 4" W.
