•New York Before the Civil War•
This is one of the most beautiful maps of New York City ever created. It was made just before the Civil War, when the only bridges into New York came in from the north across the narrow Harlem River.
The original hand-painted map, from which this replica was made, was created by one of America's finest mapmakers, Samuel Mitchell, Jr. of Philadelphia. having just taken control of his father's firm, the younger Mitchell was intent on making his mark in the industry with some of the most beautiful maps ever made. The incredible engraved border of Mitchell's 1860 maps were some of the finest ever created. In the years that followed the quality of the borders would deteriorate, as he increased production and reduced costs. S.A. Mitchell, Jr.'s early works are among the most sought after 19th century maps.
