Australia Oceanica Sandwich Islands Hawaii Polynesia NZ 1894 antique mapBrian DiMambro -Historical Investments
Map of Oceanica and Island Groups
(Australia- New Zealand- Sandwich Islands- Hawaii)
Issued 1894, Philadelphia by A.L. Smith for Wannamaker Department Stores
Uncommon original 19th century folio sheet lithographed map with original hand color.
As originally issued long ago, an actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper, not a modern copy or reprint. The paper sheet could show various minor signs of age, but if we are offering it for sale, you can be 100% certain it is entirely worthy of ownership by even the most discerning collector or dealer.
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper unworthy of specific mention are sometimes to be expected. Some gentle minor paper wrinkling, some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the pics. Nothing worthy of specific mention, overall still very nice.
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.
Great old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.
Sheet measures c. 12 " H x 15 " W.
Printed area measures c. 10 1/2" H x 13 1/2" W
