This miniature map of the Bay of Bengal appeared in a French edition of the miniature atlas Tabularum Geographicam. Towns are mostly on the coast but some are inland. The sea is stylized in sets of zigzag lines. On the reverse, page 731, is a section of text in French headed “Description de Narsinge,” describing, among other things, kingdoms in southern India, their armies with horses and elephants, products such as pearls and diamonds, the custom of widow burning, and the Portuguese in Goa. Title is in a baroque cartouche at bottom center, with a gargoyle at the top and a sea monster to its left.

Condition: Excellent condition with lovely hand coloring.
