Price: $250.00

Quantity: 1 available

Book Condition: Very Good


Original brown embossed cloth folder, approx. 6" x 4", lettered in gilt. Colored folding map, approx. 28" x 28 1/2", is better than typically found, showing minor separation at numerous fold junctures, partial but minor separation along several folds extending from edges, a few soil marks in central title header, top right corner above map portion, and minor soiling to a section of lower right portion, closed tear on central left portion where glued to backing board (still attached); retains good color, without significant tearing (closed or otherwise) or creasing. Cloth folder shows light shelf wear with minor exposure at several points along edges and at corners, paper loss along inner hinge, vintage map publisher's promotional plate (J. L. Smith, Philadelphia) mounted on upper front pastedown. Map detail extends west of the Susquehanna River to the Pennsylvania-Ohio border. Decidedly more scarce than Colton's companion Eastern Counties of PA.
