A picture is worth a thousand words. The photos are a major part of the item description. Please examine them closely, as what you see is what we will send you.
[note: we grade conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws.].
Map shows signs of age, including some damp staining, light offsetting, and short edge tears. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling, which is visible within the scan. The left side blank margin is trimmed narrow at the bottom as issued to facilitate folding.
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.
