This is a very detailed map of Worcestershire in western England, first engraved by noted London map maker Robert Morden in 1695 for Camden's Britannia, and issued in several later editions in the early years of the 18th century. The map measures 14 1/4" by 16 5/8" inside the mat (17" by 19" as framed). Like most of its type it has been hand colored at a later date. The condition is good, with fresh excellent color, minimal oxidation, and some light handling creases at lower left and upper right and some vertical creases at center, and what I imagine is the original center fold. I realize purist map collectors insist on perfection so I am being conservative in the description. Has not been opened to see if it is laid down, etc., though it doesn't appear likely to be the case. Offered as a decorative map that is ready to hang in a home or office.
