A very attractive and early map of the town of Halifax and vicinity. The map is decorated with coats of arms of the early settlers, the Ensign of Nova Scotia, butterflies, a beetle and a strange looking porcupine. Torn at binding side with a bit of missing paper and split on folds, else a very crisp impression, which deserves some repair.


Condition: C

Estimate: $220 - $250
