A beautiful and uncommon issue of this original vintage/ antique engraved & lithographed map, with original hand color. Note the large detailed inset at bottom right of the Delta of the Ganges.
Printed in the 19th century, on paper which has gently age toned as always, but which remains sound, mostly clean & well preserved.
A lovely map worthy of display which is not often seen.
In Good to Good+ or better condition; normal uniform age toning to sheet as typical, and light 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.
