Printed on lithographic paper as issued which shows minor light signs of age, is slightly age toned- resulting in a nice patina, must be handled carefully, but remains sound.
In Good+ or better antiquarian condition, mostly clean overall, light minor age dustiness or light surface wear, small scattered spotting or age soiling as seen, original fold-lines as issued, trimmed unevenly along the bottom right edge with some short edge splitting, some minor edge splits, overall the map is clean and very attractive --
