Description


This is a very nice example of Johnson and Ward's 1863 map of India and Southeast Asia. It covers from the mouths of the Indus River eastward to include all of India, Burma, Siam (Thailand), Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia (Malacca) Singapore and Vietnam (Tonquin and Chochin). It also includes parts of Nepal, China, Bhutan, Sumatra and Ceylon (Sri Lanka). Offers color coding according to country and region as well as notations regarding roadways, cities, towns, and river systems. Three inset maps focus on the Island of Bombay (Mumbai), Madras, and Calcutta. A view of the Government House and Treasury in Calcutta adorns the upper left corner. The map features the fretwork style border common to Johnson's atlas work from 1863 to 1869. Published by Johnson and Ward as plate no. 90 in the scarce 1863 edition of Johnson's Family Atlas.
