Issued London, 1889. Color lithographed by Maclure and Co.
Excellent lot of eleven uncommon late 19th century antique maps. One is oblong folding format, four are pairs issued on two sheets each, and two maps stand alone.
Each map is delicately lithographed with a profusion of details not seen on many other maps of this era.
Light uniform paper age toning, but remaining remarkable fresh and clean - pleasing and well preserved visual examples.
Almost certainly scarce as a lot.
