PLEASE NOTE: The maps are very detailed, and I try to reflect this when I write my descriptions; there may be a few typo mistakes! so if you are looking for a particular street, house, farm or place, please ask us to verify its presence before buying. Should you be looking for a particular farm, public house or similar - please ask (give us a nearby large town to work from). An emailed digital signed copy of the provenance is available on request after purchase.
It measures overall 510x345mm (20x13.5inches) approx. including borders. 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. It is suitable for framing. There is a little age yellowing. There is a tiny portion of paper missing in the top right corner which could be trimmed before framing as there is plenty of border. The listing images may show watermarks; these are NOT on the actual maps. 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.
