This is a superb engraving illustrating the flags of all seafaring nations. There are 139 flags shown along with a color key in the bottom right corner.
On sturdy, watermarked paper with a few faint printer's creases. There are a couple of minute wormholes that have been infilled, and a tear that crosses lower right corner that has been professionally repaired, with a minute amount of image in facsimile.
