This is an uncommon and very attractive map of England and Wales with panels featuring 29 city views. The British royal coast of arms surmounts a table showing the reigns of the British monarchs in the upper right quadrant. Further embellished with title and distance scale cartouches, ships and sea monsters.
Toned with a couple of spots. Laid down on cardboard from a previous framing, the age of which indicates it can be removed by a conservator. Paper appears to be sound and the map is attractive as is.
