W. Williams. “Map of Hindoostan, Farther India, China, and Tibet.” From Mitchell’s New General Atlas. Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr., 1863. 11 1/4 x 13 7/8. Lithograph. Original hand color. Very good condition.
An original antique map of southeast Asia issued in 1863 by S. Augustus Mitchell, Jr. Mitchell was one of the leading American mapmakers of the period and this map demonstrates why that was so. The map extends from India and Pakistan in the west to China and Indo-China in east. Cities, rivers, topography, are clearly presented and the political divisions indicated with contrasting colors. A decorative border completes this attractive and interesting map.
