An attractive original antique engraved map, with original hand color.
Printed in the 19th century, on paper which has gently age toned as always, but which remains sound, mostly clean & well preserved.
A lovely map worthy of display which is not often seen.
In Good to Good+ or better condition; normal uniform age toning to sheet as typical, and light staining or spotting. Overall the printed image is clean, well preserved and very attractive.
A picture is worth a thousand words. The zoomable image is a major part of the item description. Please examine closely, as what you see is what we will send you. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws ].
