A very detailed map of the Indian Subcontinent and surrounding area from the mid 19th century. James Wyld was a noted geographer and map-seller. He was the eldest son of James Wyld the Elder (1790?1836) and Eliza (née Legg). In 1838, he married Anne, the daughter of John Hester, and had two children, one of whom, James John Cooper Wyld also became a map publisher. On his father's death in 1836, Wyld became the sole owner of the thriving family mapmaking business based in Charing Cross. His maps, which covered regions as diverse as London and the gold fields of California, were regarded highly, and Wyld himself had an excellent reputation as a mapmaker; he was elected as a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in 1839, and he was appointed Geographer to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert (as had been his father before him)., Size : 756x510 (mm), 29.76x20.08 (Inches), Original Hand Coloring.
