(Regional- British Isles- Spain- France- Italy- Sweden- Germany)
Printed 1817, London.
Engraved by A. Findlay
Uncommon and quaint original antique engraved map.
Issued on period paper which now shows typical mostly gentle signs of age- perhaps some toning, spotting or foxing (see scan), but which retains its soundness.
An interesting old map worthy of comparison with a modern one.
An appealing and not often seen antique map which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a unique and thoughtful present.
Mostly clean overall, light age dustiness or light surface wear, some light to moderate scattered foxing, overall the map remains clean and attractive --
