Henry Teesdale & Co., 1844.
Map. Engraving with hand-coloring. Image measures 16 x 13".
This lovely map of Southeast Asia includes the regions of present-day Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and the tip of Singapore, all labeled with their mid-19th century names. A note in the lower left corner describes the Treaty of Yandabo, signed in 1826, which ended the First Anglo-Burmese War and ceded substantial territory to the British. This map, published circa 1843, appeared in Teesdale's "New General Atlas of the World." It is in very good condition with lovely hand-coloring. John Dower was a 19th-century British mapmaker and publisher. This map exemplifies the accuracy and clarity of his work.
