This listing is for a beautiful double-sided antique map of the BRITISH ISLES taken from the Chambers's Encyclopaedia of 1895, London and Edinburgh.
The map has one centre fold to allow it to be bound inside the volume. It is in excellent condition.
The paper is not brittle or delicate as one might expect from a paper over 100 years old.
The map is not watermarked or damaged in any way. It has aged with an even slight yellowing and is truly lovely.
One side of the map is a map of the PHYSICAL AREA OF THE BRITISH ISLES and the other is a the GEOLOGIGAL VIEW OF THE BRITISH ISLES.
You can choose which to display...both are works of art.

Map illustrator was J. Bartholomew.

All maps needed to be scanned to be listed. The map size was too big for one bite in the scanner, so each map has been scanned twice and the image stitched together.
The line you see in the middle ft of each picture does not exist on your original map, it is the joining of two scanned images.
