Additional Details

An attractive copy of Milbert's atlas of early American views in the original printed boards. The finely lithographed plates mainly depict scenes in New York State along the Hudson River but extend to include Niagara Falls and other atmospheric vistas in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia.
