In Poor to Fair antiquarian condition , paper brittle but mostly clean overall, light minor age dustiness or light surface wear, small scattered spotting or age soiling as seen, original fold-lines as issued, fold-lines now browned and splitting, panels could split apart with handling , trimmed unevenly along the left edge, overall the map is clean and very attractive -- needs to be backed and if it was it would be a nice example of the map.
