Limited edition, one of 170 copies on Holland paper. Hardcover. With three fold out facsimilies by the Bierstadt process: one of the original Bradford map, one of the copy in David Valentine's History of New York in 1853 reduced one half size, and one of the original Duyckinck Map at the New York Historical Society. 37pages. A discussion of the oft reproduced first map of New York City sometimes erroneously described as the Bradford map, but as the author details, may be one of the other maps mentioned. In GOOD condition. Minor soiling and rubbing to the book. Minor scuffing to the extremities. The lower 2 inches of the backstrip are MISSING, being rather jaggedly torn off. Inner text solid with a previous owner's signature in pencil on the title page and the name Duyckinck underlined on the map of its name (also in pencil). Dampstaining present to the last blank endpapers and very faintly to the last two pages of text, mostly in the gutter. Solid copy in GOOD condition.
