A detailed map of the Mogul Empire, showing northern India, parts of Parkinstan, 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.
