This is a folding map that would have been used by the army in the field. It was printed on waxed linen which gave it great strength and resistance to moisture and would have enabled it to be folded and unfolded many times.

worldcat.org shows only 2 copies in institutions. One being in the State Library of Victoria a detailed scan of which can be seen on their site from the link below....



SIZE: The full page unfolded is approx... 100 x 75 cm's

CONDITION: As shown in the photos.. All things considered for a folding map used by the army in the field I consider it to be in amazing condition. This was published as a folding map so has folds as can be seen. There are in one photo 4 letters someone has written in a fluro marker on the map, there are also age related marks and stains all quite minor. All can be seen in the photos. Please study the detailed photos for condition before purchasing..... Thank you.
Shipping: Will be posted in a postal tube with tracking and insurance.

Thank you.
