This listing is for a very detailed high quality and high resolution DIGITAL image, suitable for printing and framing, taken from the original copperplate engraved map with hand coloring. Some defects present on the original chart, such as marks, creases, folds, joins etc., may still be visible. This is public domain material and out of copyright.
