New York

Original 1835 antique copperplate engraved map of New York, printed more than 180 years ago. This handsome map was published in A Comprehensive Atlas, Geographical, Historical & Commercial, Boston, 1835, by Thomas Gamaliel Bradford, one of America's most esteemed early mapmakers. The image area measures 17.7 x 25.5 cm [7¾" x 10"], and longitude is measured from Washington and London. The map locates completed and chartered canals in the Empire State, including the Chenango, Champlain, Erie and Delaware & Hudson Canals. There are five unnamed and unbuilt canals — one between Avon and Olean, one from Canandaigua to Batavia, one across Clinton, Franklin, and St. Lawrence counties, between Plattsburg and Ogdensburg, one from Ogdensburg to Lisle, in Cortlandt County, and one between Rome and High Falls. The map also shows completed, chartered, and contemplated railroads. Other details include cities, towns, and natural features, with topography drawn in relief. Named features include Lake Champlain, Cooperstown, Catskill Mountains, Long Island, Albany, Buffalo, Rhinebeck, Poughkeepsie, Lake George, Troy, and Binghamton (spelled Binghampton). Condition: This map is in excellent condition, bright and clean, with a tiny chip in the upper corner and no marks, writing, or creases. It is blank on the back, with no printing on the reverse side. This is an original, authentic antique map, not a reproduction or modern reprint, and it is fully guaranteed to be genuine. It would make a beautiful display in your den or office. It would also make a perfect gift, and we'll include our helpful tips on framing with your purchase. Buy with confidence! We are always happy to combine shipping on the purchase of multiple items — just make sure to pay for everything at one time, not individually.Read more
