Seller: nt_art505 (157) 100%, Location: Albuquerque, New Mexico, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 183598406516 Mid-19th century map of Natal and Kaffraria. Just under the decorative border is the following: on the far left, 'Illustrations by H. Winkles and Engraved by W. Lacey'. As explained in the condition description, the text on the far right, 'The Map Drawn & Engraved by J. Rapkin' is missing because the map was trimmed too closely and unevenly at the time of issue/printing; this text is seen on other maps which do not suffer this inherent flaw. Size: 10-9/16" x 13-13/16" Source: plate insert in The Universal Pronouncing Dictionary, and General Expositor of the English Language Being a Complete Literary, Classical, Scientific, Biographical, Geographical, and Technological Standard...; Thomas Wright; London, New York, London Printing and Publishing Company, Vol. IV N-Q, 1852-1856. Condition: Map appears to be in generally good/fair condition consistent with antique age of item. The map has an inherent flaw: the margins of the map were trimmed unevenly and too narrowly at the time of printing/when issued, with the result that text is missing from the right bottom edge(the missing text would read "The Map Drawn & Engraved by J. Rapkin"). Of note: damage seen along the edges on the right lower and right upper sides, slight tear at fold on the right side, some browning of paper.
