13 x 9.5 inches

A lovely steel engraved and detailed map of the Crimean Peninsula, outlined in yellow with the major battle sites underlined in red. The map includes a large inset of "Sebastopol before its investment by the Allies", and four (colored) vignettes: Sebastopol, Eupatoria, Bank of the Alma, and Balaklava Harbour. All surrounded in a delicately engraved border.
About 20 tiny worm holes mostly not visible unless held to the light and barely affecting the visual aspect of the map. Otherwise very good condition.
