(New York – New York) Bartlett's Illustrated Map of New York City
A early and scarce map of the heart of Manhattan with architectural vignettes for key buildings and businesses. Notes the early parks in the city, and is surrounded with the steamers and sailing hips that frequented the docks, here each are numbered. In its original hard covers with an additional eight pages dense with advertising. In searching for additional editions of this rarity we find two other copies in institutions, but no evidence of it being offered through the antique map price guide.
Condition is good with separation at the folds but entirely complete. A fine NYC rarity. Image size is 21.5 x 34.5, full printed color.
