There is excellent topographical detail and plenty of towns, cities, and roads. Three distance scales appear below the simple circular title cartouche.


Condition: B+

Contemporary outline color with light offsetting, a 1.25" centerfold separation at bottom, and light soiling that is mostly confined to the blank margins.
