Issued 1866, Gotha, Germany by Justus Perthes
Engraved by H. Alt & Schroeder
Fine and uncommon old engraved map with original outline hand color.
There are numerous issues of this map with varying details. A nice moment in the evolution in the cartography of this continent. Large detailed inset of Sydney/ Port Jackson at bottom center.
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 remains well preserved although there is some noticable light dampstaining to the top 1/3 corner of the sheet (which is very easy to overlook or forgive visually). Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling which is visible within the scan.
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. Condition is carefully considered in arriving at our price.
Great old vintage antique map entirely worthy of hanging for display.
A depiction captured in a manner entirely unique to this era.
