Lovely mid-19th century antique map, engraved with original full hand color heightened in outline. An especially pleasing manner of hand color fairly unique to this era, a very nice visual quality displayed as a result.

Minor light toning, a very nice looking example indeed of this uncommon antique map which only appeared within a very uncommon period atlas.

Printed area measures c. 10" x 8".
