An attractive and very uncommon old, vintage, antique engraved map.
Printed in the early 19th century, on paper which has gently age toned as always, but which remains sound, mostly clean & well preserved.
In Good to Good+ or better condition; light to moderate uniform age toning to sheet as typical, and light age staining or spotting. Overall the printed image is clean, well preserved and very attractive.
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 little-known and fascinating antique map which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own and display.
