Map thought to have been extracted from the book, now framed. [This map was likely exhibited in an early Von Tempsky exhibition. It was linked back to the book based on online digital archives that showed the map as a folded plate within the book, between the 'list of illustrations' and the first plate (which faces pg 1)].
