An early nineteenth century map of the Indian subcontinent, encompassing parts of modern day Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bhutan, and Bangladesh, as well as adjoining parts of Persia, Tibet, and South East Asia, from Richard Phillips 'A School Atlas.' The various provinces of India are outlined in different hand colour, and the title is enclosed in a simple box cartouche.
John Charles Russell (1773-1848) was a British map engraver and print maker, the son of John Russell (c.1750-1829), who was also an engraver and cartographer. Despite publishing his own atlas, 'Russell's General Atlas of Modern Geography, he is best known for contributing map plates to the works of other cartographers, including Guthrie, Barlow, Guy, and Phillips.
