Antique Map Auction Sale No. 127 - closed 2/25/2009
A dramatic and decorative map of the state that includes a beautifully colored inset of Niagara Falls. The map is colored by county with much detail of towns and villages, canals, railroads, wagon roads, watershed and more. A second inset shows all of Long Island on the same scale as the main map. The titling is in fancy text with flourishes and banknote-style pattern behind. A wide, handsome border surrounds. Blank verso. A rarely seen map by Charles Magnus, 12 Frankfort Str. New York. The map appears to have been issued separately or perhaps in a pocket map format although there is no evidence of it being attached to covers.
