Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 19 3/4 x 23 inches. Sheet measures 22 x 26 inches.
Lovely map of Sri Lanka and part of India including Adams Bridge (limestone shoals between India and Sri Lanka, perhaps formerly constituting a land bridge also called Rama Setu) and two elegant cartouches. Staining throughout some toning otherwise good. Reiner and Joshua Ottens (1698-1750 and 1704-1765) took over their father's map-making business in 1725. They were known best for producing enormous made-to-order map collections, including copies of almost all maps available at the time. This map is a good example of their work.
