Lithographed by E. Weller
Original mid- 19th Century lithographed map in 4 sheets as issued, with original hand color.
Stunningly detailed, literally thousands of place names, roads and details.
Printed on paper which shows light signs of age, is slightly age toned- resulting in a nice patina, should be handled carefully, but paper remains sound and flexible.
A detailed and interesting map which could readily be collected on it's own merits, displayed or given as a present.
In Good+ or better antiquarian condition, mostly clean overall, light minor age dustiness or light surface wear, small scattered soiling and spotting as seen, some minor edge splits, overall the map is clean and very attractive -- if assembled, would be close to a wall map in size and impact appearance.
