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.
In Good+ to about VG or better condition, normal minor light age toning to sheet, a slight waviness to the sheet, and some mostly minor foxing, overall the image is very clean and attractive, given its age-- please inspect visual scan closely [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
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.
Sheet measures c. 12 1/2" W x 11 1/8" H.
Engraved area measures c. 10 3/8" W x 9 5/8" H.
