A scarce old vintage antique engraved map with original hand color.
Printed in the mid-19th century on paper which has lightly age toned, but which remains sound, clean & very well preserved. Nice looking old map in person.
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 ].
A lovely map worthy of display.
In Good+ to near VG or better condition, normal light age toning to sheet as typical, as well as some minor light age staining or foxing (should be visible in pics), overall the printed image area is clean and attractive.
A nice map which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own.
