This map is from the date stated and not a later reproduction
Suitable for framing. It measures 500x330mm (19.25x13inches). It is blank on the reverse. It has an as published fold to the centre. It originally would have been in an atlas, edge mounted so as to avoid damage to the map, and not stapled. The 'as published' fold has split at some time, which has been repaired on the reverse. There is also a repaired tear to the top border, only slightly affecting the map itself (and this is actually in the county of Suffolk area). There are some handling marks and a couple of light stains to the bottom border - all visible in the larger image.
This item will be packaged in a tube and sent Royal Mail Small Parcels IMPORTANT This postal service does not include tracking. If tracking is required please contact me for prices.
