Comments: This map of the Burman Empire extends from Calcutta to Hong Kong. It includes the modern-day regions of Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, and the tip of Borneo. The map was published circa 1850, shortly after the British moved to Hong Kong Island, after the Treaty Of Nanking in June 1842. British territories are colored red, Burmese green and Siamese blue, as per an index in the lower left corner. The map is in very good condition with minor chips to the edges, not affecting the image, and some scattered stray marks. James Wyld (1812-1887) was a distinguished British mapmaker known for producing maps and globes. He served as Geographer to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. This lovely map of the East Indies is a fine example of his work.

Let me take a moment to let you know how pleased I am not only with your timeliness and help, but also your honesty and commitment to your customers. As an instructor at Duquesne University, I am always telling my students about responsibility and, lately, some of the book dealers have given me unnecessary difficulties...
