Very detailed antique map, lithographed with original hand color.
A monumental map, printed on a large elephant folio sheet which appeared in a very rare huge turn-of-the century English atlas over 100 years ago.
Printed in the early 20th century, the paper has been gently age toned as always, but which remains sound, mostly clean & well preserved.
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 ].
In near Very Good or better condition; normal uniform minor age toning to sheet as typical, light waviness and small staining or spotting as should be clearly visible within the photos. Overall the printed image is clean, well preserved and very attractive.
A fascinating and beautifully engraved antique map which any collector, dealer, institution or person of artistic taste would be happy to own and display.
