Additional Details

Extremely scarce first edition of this distinctive map of the New York City metropolitan area, a theme which was adapted and replicated long into the nineteenth century by other publishers and engravers. The engraving for this map was done by Peter Maverick in Newark, NJ. Stokes calls it "one of the most complete, accurate, and beautiful early engraved maps showing New York and its environs."
