Fine and uncommon original antique lithograph map with lovely hand color.
Printed on quality handmade paper which retains its inherent structural flexibility and soundness.
In near VG or better condition, minor light surface age wear, light uniform age toning as typical, scattered foxing or staining, as well as some slight edge wear, overall the image is clean and very attractive, well worthy of ownership [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
The printed area remains visually pleasing, a nice impression of an interesting antique map.
Any minor defects along the sheet edges and in the margins may be seen in the photos.
Sheet measures c. 11 7/8" W x 9 3/8" H.
Printed area measures c. 10 3/8" W x 7 5/8" H.
