This map of the Country Round London has been framed and on display for the past 9 years. As a result, the age toning of this map is quite pronounced due to UV exposure. This folding map was definitely a traveling map, and as such is a well used and grubby item. It is quite stained in places, but overall is in good condition considering the amount of use it has seen over the centuries. There are a number of hand written notes in the blank border area.

Unfortunately the slipcase for this map is currently missing. However, Faden's label is affixed to the linen backing of the map. You can click on the image to the right for an enlarged view of the label.
