It shows a wealth of detail including topographical features (mountains, rivers, oases, etc.), latitude and longitude, countries and colonies, cities and villages, routes of old railways and more.
This is a guaranteed genuine antique map!
Perfect for genealogy or other historical research, this map was printed on a single sheet of stock and bound whole in an antique book. T are no stains or marks, the coloring is nice and fresh, and the paper is clean and not brittle. Highly suitable for framing (see one suggested presentation below), it would look great in your office, den, library or study. It is similar to many of the maps sold in expensive stores and catalogs, with one important difference: this is an actual antique, NOT a modern reproduction! Keep this map in a safe place, as it will appreciate in value as time goes by. Please ask all questions before placing your bid.
