A nice impression on a sturdy sheet with a light dampstain adjacent to the compass rose at left and a bit of toning along the centerfold and edges of the sheet. There is a bit of a grayish shadow along the centerfold and in the blank margins that is caused by our scanner and doesn't appear on the map itself.

Estimate: $275 - $350

Sold for: $200
