This is a wonderful pre-satellite map of the Indian subcontinent at a major turn in its history, right between Mughal and British rule. I really liked the resolution, and the attention to detail in the landscape. Noticed a “published by A. Finley Philada.” scribbled at the bottom. Quick google search turns up that “Philad” isnt his last name, its short for Philadelphia (duh), out of where this cartographer named Anthony Finley was based out of. A little more diggin around and I found this site auctioning the guys maps. And the shoe fits. So I thought that was pretty cool.
