A close copy of Bellin's map of northern India, with Pakistan and Afghanistan.
Bellin's map was first issued in Pr?vost's 'Histoire Generale des Voyages'; this example was engraved for Abb? Raynal's 'Histoire Philosophique et Politique des etablissements & du commerce des Europ?ens dans les deux Indes'. Written in collaboration with other writers, including Denis Diderot, its Radical tone earned it a place on the Roman Catholic Church's Index of Forbidden Books, requiring it to be burned.
