The first of a pair of Indian prints is a rare map of the fort of Kollam, Kerala, on India's (east) Malabar Coast by the French cartographer N. Bellin. Kollam, or as it is otherwise known as 'Quilon' or 'Coilin', lies roughly 71 km north of Trivandrum, in India.
Kollam Fort was originally built by the Portugese, however, it was captured by the Dutch in 1671 and again by the British in 1795. This map shows a beautiful image of the fort completely with formal palm forests and sailing ships offshore. Prepared by N. Bellin for issue in the 1757 edition of A. Provost's < i>L`Histoire Générale des Voyages.

The second print is Cranganor, or Kodungallur in the Indian dialect. It is situated in Kerala, about 29 km north west of Konchi, and was very important in Indian history as a major trading centre.
During its history it was captured and defended by the Portuguese (16th century) and the Dutch (17th century).
