AUTHENTICITY
Hind, Hindoostan, or India - Antique Map from 1800

Genuine antique
dated:

1800

Description:

Spectacular large scale map of India based on the seminal surveys conducted by James Rennell Rennell’s contained in his Bengal Atlas (1779) and later in the first detailed map of India (1783). The map has a sumptuous title cartouche comprising an elephant and palm trees at lower right. This third edition is updated to include the recent  Siege of Seringapatam (5 April – 4 May 1799) which was the final confrontation of the Fourth Anglo-Mysore War between the British East India Company and the Kingdom of Mysore. It resulted in the subsequent division of Mysore in 1799. 

From Faden’s, General atlas.

Mapmaker:

Louis Stanislas d’Arcy de la Rochette (1731-1802)

Born in 1731, he married Margaret Scale and he was associated with William Faden who produced many of his maps. Little other biographical exists. His maps are all of a high quality and all include updated information at the time of their publications. Having a long association with Faden further enforces his high standing.

William Faden (1750-1836)

Faden was a cartographer and publisher who took over Thomas Jefferys’s business in 1771 and held the position of Geographer to His Majesty the King and the Prince of Wales. Faden’s work was of the highest standard and he was chosen to produce the very first map for the Ordnance Survey – a map of Kent in four sheets – in 1801.
