Issued 1844, Edinburgh, by A.& C. Black

An attractive oversized old vintage engraved map, with original outline hand color.
Printed in the 19th century, on paper which has gently age toned as always, but which remains sound, mostly clean & well preserved.
In Good to Good+ or better condition; some extra minor wrinkling along the centerfold line as often seen on folding maps of this size and era, normal uniform minor age toning to sheet as typical, light edge wear, slight crease running parallel to the centerfold line, and light to moderate staining or spotting. Overall the printed image is clean, well preserved and very attractive.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The zoomable image is a major part of the item description. Please examine closely, as what you see is what we will send you. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws ].
A little-known and fascinating antique map which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own and display.
