BLAEU, Johannes. [17th century map of the Mogol Empire in northern India]
Magni Mogolis Imperium. Amsterdam: c.1640, Latin text. Original colour. 370 x 500mm.
A detailed map of the Mogul Empire, showing northern India, parts of Afghanistan and Bengal. It is based on information supplied by Sir Thomas Roe (c.1581-1644), ambassador to the emperor Jahangir between 1615-8. At a time that roads were not usually shown on maps, this marks his route to the court as a line of villages from Surat via Agra, Delhi and Lahore, through the Khyber Pass to Jalalabad and Kabul in Afghanistan. His route was a southern spur of the Silk Road, making this one of the few contemporary maps to include such information.

FRESCHOT, Casimir Don. [An extremely rare miniature map of India]
(39) Costa d Malabar in Asia: Goa et alcune piaze sono à Portogesi, il resto uiue sotto i suoi Principi. Venice: Giovanni Pare', c. 1680. Sheet 52 x 53mm. Trimmed from a large broadsheet.
Don Casimir Freschot, a Benedictine Priest and author of about 50 books on history and Venice, composed a 'goose game', 'Geografia ridotta a giuoco per istruttione della giovane nobiltà veneziana', to facilitate "the teaching of geography to the young Venetian nobility", of which this map was a section. Engraved by Anton Francesco Lucini, this was probably the earliest geographical game to be published. The 'board' comprised 153 squares containing small maps, arranged in a spiral, with a plan of Venice at the centre. Above the game were four larger maps of the continents, the rules, including the prizes and forfeits for landing on squares, and a dedication. There is only one known complete example, in the Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana in Venice. Even incomplete examples are extremely rare. "Charta Geographica" magazine, vol.1, page 76; plus insert with facsimile broadsheet.
