Thanks for sharing

Is there an English translation of this available?

During the golden era of European cartography ( 16th/17th CE), the Kingdom of Narsinga/ Kingdom of Bisnagar , stand out in Indian maps of the period (by the flemish/dutch cartographic giants like Ortelius, Hondius etc), driven by stories of its fabled wealth. There is even one peninsular India map of the year 1598 - 1610 CE by P Bertius which is titled " Narsinga" . Covers "Narsinga & Ceylon" actually. Its one of the 6 beautiful India maps from Bertius's Atlas Minor ( Small Size). ( )

Unable to locate it on the Net.

I believe, there is.

Hope it would suffice your curiosity.

Also requesting RBSI to kindly upload the two on its page.

And one more, please:

Thanks a ton

I'd like to ask: I'm Portuguese and my research focuses on Vijayanagara. But, reading the Latin/Portuguese text, I cannot see a connection with the empire. Could you give me more informations please? Many thanks
