    Response by seller
    Hi Leo, thank you for your feedback. You are correct, there was a minor defect on right edge. If there were others, sometimes the edges of Tallis maps can be slightly brittle, resulting in minor edge defects when rolled in a mail tube. If you would like to send me a photo, I'd be happy to examine it, so I can improve in future. As a result of your feedback, I will also be sending all future Tallis maps flat packed to avoid this, so thanks for letting me know. Regards, Vince
  • Excellent map. Quick delivery. Well packed. Thanks! A+++
