Two very detailed and uncommon maps of New York City on the same sheet. The top map shows the island of Manhattan and Brooklyn, while the bottom map shows Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn. To the left of the map is a key listing 37 locations. Next to the key there is an interesting note that the buildings on the southeastern tip of Manhattan are shaded more lightly to indicate they were destroyed by the Great Fire of 1835.
Clean, bright impression with occasional light toning primarily in the margins. Near fine.
