MAP OF THE COUNTRY THIRTY-THREE MILES AROUND THE CITY OF NEW YORK.
A fine reproduction of one of the most beautiful pocket maps of New York made in the 19th century: Colton’s Thirty Three Miles Around the City of New York. Covers New York City and vicinity as far south as Ocean County, New Jersey, as far east as Suffolk County, as far north as Rockland County, and as far west as Somerset County. Surrounded by a splendid decorative border with engraved views depicting “City Hall, New York” and “City Hall, Brooklyn”. Colton’s success with this attractive map was such that it was issued in various editions for over 50 years. Haskell notes eight different editions between 1846 and 1873 and Rumsey has a variant dated 1891. Published by J.H.Colton, no. 86 Cedar St.New York.
