9781333590819: The Gazetteer of Sikhim (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Gazetteer of Sikhim
In one respect it is even more realistic than the medieval maps to which it bears a general resemblance; for the houses on either side of the Darjeeling spur are reversed in relation to each other, so that to bring them into their proper positions, the map, which is drawn on cloth, must be tilted up from below like the ridge of a tent. As a political manifesto, the map is of peculiar interest at the present time; and one is disposed to wonder that our barbarous neighbours should have been so ready to adopt one Of the characteristic weapons of modern diplomacy. The Lingtu fort, with its block-house and wall, stands out in conspicuous disregard Of proportion and perspective; while Tibetan territory (coloured yellow) is shown as extending to the Rishi river, about thirty miles in advance of the frontier hitherto recognised by all parties concerned. Although the borders of Tibet are to this extent enlarged, the assertion of her paramount authority over Sikhim is not indicated on the face of the map. SO far at least as colouring goes, that State is not made out to be a part Of Tibet. It is painted red, while the British district of Darjeeling is shown in a lighter shade of the same colour.
