Victoria Australia antique map 1888 very large detailed uncommon Port PhillipBrian DiMambro -Historical Investments
General Map of Victoria- inset of Port Phillip Bay and Surroundings
Issued 1888, Sydney & Melbourne for Picturesque Atlas Publishing Co.
Very large and detailed original antique printed color map. The key below title gives the distance scale as in English miles, then identifies on the map railways which were already constructed, under construction and thus far only proposed.
As originally issued long ago, an actual antique/ vintage printed sheet of paper more than 100 years old, not a modern copy or reprint of a map.
Sheet remains well preserved, keeping in mind it is not modern or new, so minor flaws to paper unworthy of specific mention are sometimes to be expected. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, all of which is hopefully visible within the pictures
The paper sheet could show various minor signs of age, but if we are offering it for sale, you can be 100% certain it is entirely worthy of ownership by even the most discerning collector or dealer.
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price. If the map has a fold-line down the middle, it is original to the map.
Attractive and desirable old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A cartographic depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
Sheet measures c. 16 7/8" x 25 1/2" .
Printed area measures c. 14 1/2" x 24"
A picture is worth a thousand words. The pictures are a major part of the item description. Please examine them closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
