Their publications were intended for the working class & the middle class, as an antidote to the more radical output of the pauper presses. Condition: Good Vintage condition, commensurate with age. This map is in incredible shape for being almost 200 years old. Edge-wear & coloration as can be seen in the photographs, but this will read as vintage character when framed.
