Publisher's original temporary plain blue paper wrappers, text block still unopened and untrimmed as issued with deckled edges.
Rare survival in any condition. Temporary printer's paper bindings like this are often unique and random survivals, as most examples were intended to be bound by the purchaser in something more permanent, like cloth or leather
Sound and tight as issued, fragile blue paper covers still present. Spotting throughout, never heavy, entirely pleasing age patina.
Very scarce folding map with a decorative title cartouche.
