Linen backed, wall map of the county.

The map is surrounded in a beautiful border with depictions of Indians and stalks of corn. At bottom is another scene of an Indian village with the scale of miles. The Indians are based on the fine drawings of Catlin. Complete with original rollers, top rail detached. Map is toned with minor surface abraision. There are two clean tears (4" and 6") into map at top and three small puncture holes. All damage is in the top third of the map. Will be very nice after restoration.
