"A Plan of the City of New York from an actual Survey Made by James Lyne"

Lithograph. Published in "History of the City of New York" by David T. Valentine

New York, 1853

This lithograph shows the state of New York City in the year 1728.

Valentine describes the City of New York from early on when it was still called New Amsterdam. In 1728 Manhattan had already grown to a huge city. This large lithograph had been folded vertically and horizontally several times to fit into the octavo book size. Our restorer has done an admirable job to even out the folds, which can still be seen when the lithograph is held against a light source. There was a tear where the lithograph was bound into the spine of the book, which is now also expertly restored. There is minimal spotting from Pearl Street to Dock Street (lower left in Lower Manhattan).

In general the city map is in very nice condition due to professional restoration,

It is a pleasure to see and have for anyone interested in the City of New York.

43 x 56 cm (ca. 16.9 x 22")
