Product Description

Antique Map of the East Indies by Bowen titled ‘An ACCURATE MAP of the EAST INDIES Laid down from the beft Authorities By Eman: Bowen Geog.r to His Majesty’.

A small copper engraved map of India, Southeast Asia and the East Indies in modern hand colour by Emanuel Bowen (c.1693/94-1767), one of the leading 18th century mapmakers and engravers in London. Appointed as engraver of maps to King George II and possibly King Louis XV of France. The map was possibly published in Bowen’s Complete System of Geography (one of 70 maps in the volume) between 1744 and 1747 although the accuracy of the longitude would suggest a date nearer to 1770.
