The map itself is in very good condition, with fresh, bright printed colour. The original owner’s name (“E. Watson, 15 Orfeur St, Carlisle”) written in pencil in lower margin. The cover has suffered damp staining, which has partially bleached and discoloured the red boards, though this does not affect the map itself. The accompanying 32pp index of names is complete althogh detached from the covers. There is also an interesting advertisement listing 21 of “The Ocean Travellers Series of Pocket Maps” priced 5/- each.
