Magni Mogolis Imperium, anno 1700, Schenk/Valk, copperengraving, original publishers colours, wide margins, good condition, only on margins little fingerstained. 48 x 36 cm The map shows the The Mughal Empire in Asia. The Mughal Empire existed from 1526 – 1858 in the Indian subcontinent. The heartland of the empire was in the North Indo-Gangetic plan around the cities of Delhi, Agra and Lahore. At the height of its power in the 17th Century the Mughal empire almost covered the entire subcontinent and parts of present-day Afghanistan. The top left cartouche represents the connection between Europe and the Mughal Empire. The map is centered on India and extends to Persia and Lahor. The title cartouche is detailed and has images of contemporary local nobles. Petrus Schenk I (1661-1711) was a cartographer, engraver and publisher. In 1683 together with his father Gerard Valck (1652-1726) bought the copper plates from William Blaeu. These were used to publish the atlas "Atlas Contractus” between 1695 and 1705.
