Johann Baptist Homann's well-engraved map of southern India and Ceylon. This beautiful 1733 map of Southern India and Sri Lanka or Ceylon was issued by Homann Heirs. It is largely based on the earlier cartographic work of Jean Bourcet, it covers from Daman south to include all of Ceylon (Sri Lanka.)
Mapping the region following the death of Emperor Aurangzeb, and the resulting decline of the Mughal Empire, several important towns and cities are noted throughout with beautifully rendered topography noting rivers, hills, mountains, forests, and roads. Some coastal features are also noted including Adams Bank, Pearl Banks near the Pearl Fishery Coast, and others.

Johann Baptist Homann (1663-1724) was a German engraver and publisher, who established himself and his family as perhaps the most famous German map publishers. Following his death in 1724, the business continued under the name Homann Heirs . This Homann map is finely engraved, and in wash colour.
