Beautiful map, published in Paris, with excellent inking and water colouring and everything else. Considering the year of publication, it is a geographically well detailed map at every point.

The map is in very good condition, as per photos. It shows small signs of ageing, which do not affect the engraved area at all, as shown in photos.
