We locate only one record of a copy with the folding map at page 9, (a Hathi trust digital copy showing the map) which is not present in this copy. It has clearly not been removed from this copy, so it seems likely that some copies were issued with the map, and many without. OCLC: 824482968. Very good overall. Item #20985
