Issued Leipzig, Germany, 1856 by Hinrich (for Stein).
Remarkably detailed mid-19th century antique map. Engraved with original outline hand color.
Scarce folio-sheet map.
Minor light toning and small scattered age spotting as typical for maps of this vintage, perhaps small minor paper flaws, but to our eyes and for most people, an entirely acceptable and nice looking example of this uncommon large-format map.
Original fold lines as issued.
Sheet measures c. 26" x 16 3/4".
Printed area measures c. 24 1/2" x 15 1/2".
