Map remains well preserved. Some light age wear or surface spotting/ soiling which is visible within the scan, but really, no flaws worthy of mention or discussion..
Paper and image remains overall clean & sound. Old maps & prints often display small minor repairs on the back, could have uneven blank margins, might have extraneous fold-lines or other small minor age flaws which do not detract from the visual appeal or value.
