Map of the New Capital Delhi, early 20th century


Folding map titled NEW CAPITAL DELHI with two maps on a 17 x 12 ins sheet which folds down to 4½ x 5½ ins and has clearly been in a guide book of some sort but we are unsure which. One map shows the street paln with the Durbar Amphitheatre and Kingsway station top left and entitled Civil station showing roadsthe other titled Showing roads around Delhi The map appears to date from between 1911, when the new capital was announced at the Coronation Durbar by the King Emperor, and the completion of the Lutyens buildings of the new capital. Used but reasonable condition with a closed edge tear to the right margin and two pin holes at fold intersections.    jan8/2     SOLD 16th June 2022
