A detailed plan of the famous Fort St. George and the city of Chennai, formerly Madras. The fort was the first British fortification in India, built in 1639; it still stands today. There are a number of alpha-numeric keys and remarks on the points of interest in the area, including the ‘burying places’ for the various peoples, including Armenians, Moors, Portuguese, Pagans, and Jews. Ships skim along the shore in the foreground. The map was engraved by Herman Moll and published in Thomas Salmon’s ‘Modern History’. Shirley (BL Atlases) G.Salm-1c 8.
