Fine large format map of Assam and neighboring regions, published in Berghaus' rare Atlas von Asia.
Includes parts of Myanmar, Bhutan, Arunachal, Meghalaya, Manipur, Nagaland and Tibet, extending the western part of Yunan Province in China and Tibet.
The map is perhaps the largest format atlas map of the 19th Century to focus on this region, doing so in the meticulous style of Berghaus and Justus Perthes, the publisher.
The map provides both geographical and topographical details, several profile maps illustrating the heights of mountain ranges and 7 vignettes showing natural phenomenon and man-made locations.
The map is very rare on the market, this being the second example we have ever seen offered for sale.
