A floral wreath cartouche encases the title, and the map is surrounded by a keyboard-style border. Dissected and backed in linen with green mottled marble-paper end covers and a table of railways on verso.
There is light soiling, numerous manuscript notations in blank ink, minor offsetting, and a few splits in the linen at fold intersections.
