CONDITION
 
The paper has yellowed and is brittle. There is little foxing. The most significant foxing is on the Island of Japan. There are a few marks in the margin and the edges and most of the corners have small pieces missing. The map itself though has no rips or tears and the colors used for shading the countries are clear.  The face of the frame has many scratches and nicks but gives the map a very antique feel.
