Peninsula Indiae citra Gangem hoc est orae celeberrimae Malabar et Coromandel: cum adjacente insula non minus celebratissima Ceylon

Description

This beautiful map was published by the Homann heirs, successors of the prolific German map publishing house created by Johann Baptist Homann (1664-1724), Imperial Cartographer to the Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI. It is especially noted for its wonderful decorative cartouche but the map itself shows the coastal areas in great detail and includes flags to denote the claims of various European powers.
