All maps have some darkening at the folds and all have closed tears, mainly at the fold lines, some occasional foxing but mainly age-darkening. The general map is very large and is only in fair condition with numerous closed tears along the fold lines and a 1" x 2" chip near the center. Essentially a reading copy and priced accordingly..
