It is then hand colored. Approx. 9.25 x 31.5 inches to image border. Total sheet size is 14 x 35.25 inches. Printed on heavy paper that has an antique appearance. Has some imperfections that give the map a more authentic look. Because these are hand colored, the coloring may vary slightly from the photo.
