Condition: B

Good impression and original color. The map has a few small stains in the bottom. The margins have some stains, and with one tear nearly invisible, entering 1" into the map, repaired with paper on the verso. Some worming in the top margin has been repaired with paper as well. This would frame very well and these small defects would not be visible.
