These very well executed and detailed prints of India show most of the territories held by the French during the early 19th century. While most of India was under British control, the French had significant settlements on the Coromandel Coast (Pondicherry, Karikal, and Yanaon) as well as the Malabar Coast (Mahé). Published in Paris in the year 1835, this complete set hardly appears on the market. A unique find for those interested in colonial India.
