CHARLES VERNON FARROW (1896-1936) A MAP OF THE WONDROUS ISLE OF MANHATTAN. 1926. 25x39 1/4 inches, 63 1/2x99 3/4 cm. Washington Square Bookshop, New York. Condition B+: creases, abrasions and small losses along edges; separated into sections and mounted on linen. Framed. " Farrow's spectacular map demonstrates the close connection between bird's-eye views and pictorial maps. the traditional bird's-eye view, however, has been transformed by Farrow's use of bright colors . . . and comic figures. the depiction of Manhattan's architecture - many buildings are easily identifiable - is a tour de force, without parallel in the pictorial map genre. Title cartouche and map borders capture the boisterous and lavish world of New York in the 1920s" (Picturing America p. 126). Picturing America pl. 51.
