Lovely 19th century engraved and lithographed map with original hand color. Mitchell maps of this mid-century era were issued with a range of color as well as variant decorative borders.
There are several variant issues of this map with differing boundaries for the countries depicted. A map worthy of close inspection.
Nice looking example, clean and fresh, pleasing age patina, any small age spots or minor age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
