Antique Map of India and Ceylon by Seale (c.1760)



Antique Map of India and Ceylon titled ‘Plate I: The South East Part’. A mid-18th century of central and southern India and Ceylon (Sri Lanka) derived from the work of J.P Bourguignon d’Anville, and improved by ‘Mr.Bolton’, an English 18th century cartographer and engraved by R.W Seale.

Richard William Seale (1703-1762) was an English mapmaker and engraver from London. Richard Seale, his father, was a member of the Stationers Company, suggesting that printing and engraving must have been a family trade. Nevertheless, he was not taught by his father, but was apprenticed to Samuel Parker of Clerkenwell in 1719. Seale was quite active as an engraver and publisher from about 1740 until his death in 1762.
