There is some light foxing and some dustiness, but overall a pleasing document.

Each map is numbered in red, and named, with a scale given in chains.The maps are coloured in green, red and blue and yellow, with woodland etc in pen. Several pages of blanks follow the maps, and then four pages of “Cropping of Ruchlaw Main and Policy Parks” showing a crop rotation from 1879-1892.
