The image is surrounded by a double ruled border and titled in the lower margin, with the artist’s signature and the publisher’s copyright notice in matrix, lower left and right. The print was apparently sold folded as a pocket map within paper covers or a guidebook, or as an unfolded version that was advertised as printed on “heavy double coated paper, suitable for framing, sent by post in mailing tube.”
