Interesting late 19th century antique folio color lithographed map showing the progress of surveying the United States.
In near VG condition, the fold-line browning seen in the pics is largely a digital shadow effect and is nowhere near as visually pronounced on the map surface itself (just a light browning on the map which is visually inoffensive and easy to overlook).
