Among the maps in our Asia collection are several from the College Atlas by H.G. Collins published in 1852, including: Asia, China, Turkey and North and South India. The Indian Empire map from the Bartholomew International Reference Atlas of the World published in 1914 is interesting as it graphically illustrates the reach of British imperial power on the Indian subcontinent.
Extending far beyond the political borders of modern India, the writ of the King Emperor George V ran across a territory that also encompassed the present-day states of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar (Burma). Although not officially recognised as part of British India, the strategically vital Crown colony of Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and the northern kingdoms of Nepal and Bhutan also fell under its influence.
