William Faden "Map of the Peninsula of India…" 1792

William Faden (British, 1749-1836), "A Map of the Peninsula of India from the 19th Degree North Latitude to Cape Comorin, MDCCXCII" - published in London, 1792. An antique 2-sheet map of India, with original hand-coloring by region. This is one of the most extensively detailed maps of its time. William Faden, a prominent London mapmaker and publisher, also partnered with Thomas Jeffreys from 1773 to 1776. By 1783, Faden took over ownership of the firm. That same year he was bestowed with the title of "Geographer to the King". Faden was also known for his depictions of North America and created many British county maps, making him the ideal partner to the Ordnance Survey; indeed Faden published the first Ordnance map in 1801. In addition, the Admiralty respected his work and acquired some of his plates; these were re-issued as official naval charts. When Faden retired in 1823, James Wyld, his former apprentice, assumed the successful business. Size: 40" L x 32" W (101.6 cm x 81.3 cm)
