Yeah, that's pretty cool. Thanks, man. I like the auto zoomer thingy in a separate window but I wanna download it so I look even closer.
I figure a map that old must be out of copyright...

That's a very nice map. And over two hundred years old, it displays mild discoloration and some wear around the folds.
