    Condition: about eight fold lines; very worn, with holes along top edge, as if the text was formerly pasted down on paper and then stripped off; it appears, from the matching fold lines and surface dirt on the versos of both RCINs 722026.a and b that RCIN 722026.b was formerly pasted down along the bottom edge of RCIN 722026.a. Two fold lines to the mount, one of which coincides with the central fold line of the print; pressure marks from the mounts of items which were kept above and below this map/print in a different collection are present on the recto and verso
