Original copper engraving, hand colored when published. Original folded dissected map in eight sheets, mounted on linen as published. This large, unusual rare map was published as map no. 7 in the rare series of ,Berghaus Atlas from Asia'. Present is here the 2nd edition published 1858, equipped in the lower right corner with an additional inset map showing the languages and dialects of India. All maps from ,Berghaus Atlas from Asia' can be considered due of their small edition as very rare and they are hardly to find on the market. Even institutions often do not have examples in their collections. Depicted is the map of Vorderinden after a sketch by James Rennell. The map is equipped with several inset maps and several tables of explanations (political divisions, mileage scales, hydrolgic and metrologic information, etc.)
