"Covering the Helmsley-Pickering Area and including the Wombleton Airfield [England]. Highly colour-keyed with various land uses from arable, market gardening, woodland, industry, transport, etc. Mapped with the assistance of pupils, staff and friends of Lady Lumley's School, Pickering - 1960 - 1963. A very interesting and unusual map. It would beautiful framed. In good, clean unmarked condition - apart from slight wear to folds." [emphasis added, word omission from the seller]

Okay, who's geeky enough to buy this, let alone frame it?
