Remarkably detailed vintage map which also shows topography. Of particular interest for the rather unusual features of submarine cable lines- a very early mention of submarines on any printed maps! Lighthouse locations also shown, plus numerous early explorers routes- these features are all so-mentioned in the key. Original center fold-line to sheet as issued.
Ready for display.
A very detailed late 19th century map which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a present.
Nice looking map, in excellent, clean, close to new looking condition.
An interesting vintage map that any collector, dealer, institution or person of taste would be happy to own or display.
Sheet measures c. 16 1/4" W x 11 3/4" H.
