Fine original antique engraved map.
Printed in the mid-18th century on quality hand made paper as issued which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.

The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting and somewhat uncommon map.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.
