Description:

Fine example of this important early map of India & Southeast Asia, from Pierre Du Val, the main rival to Nicolas Sanson among French mapmakers of the 17th Century.

First published in 1654 and issued separately, then included in Sanson's Atlas Les Cartes Générales de toutes parties du Monde, first issued in 1658. Engraved by Jan van Somer, the map shows most of modern India, Bangladesh and Burma, the whole of Sri Lanka, Thailand, Malaysia, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam, and parts of Indonesia and China. It shows the cities and smaller settlements, rivers and mountain chains, as well as the borders of the seventeenth-century kingdoms and other major political divisions, most of them further subdivided.
