Condition report: Good condition; light age toning; occasional faint offsetting; small diagonal closed tear of approx.2cm at the left edge of the sheet where it was bound into its original publication. There are several fold creases and it is trimmed close to, and occasionally inside, the neatline of the map (nb top right corner). This is because this map was originally published in a 8vo volume (approx leaf size 12cm x 20cm) so the sheet on which the map was printed was required to be folded and trimmed to fit.
