Product Description

This large original antique map of the State of New York comes from Mitchell's Universal Atlas of 1855. This unique vintage map contains many demographic entries along with numerous city inset maps such as the Hudson valley, Albany, Buffalo and more. This map does have a 2" centerfold separation without loss coming in from the bottom as shown and has been professionally repaired with archival tape. This is the first edition published by DeSilver. He had acquired the rights to the Universal Atlas from Cowperthwait in 1855 who in turn had acquired the rights from Mitchell in 1850. This map was published by Charles DeSilver in 1855 at No. 253 Market St. Philadelphia. The paper size for this large double map is approximately 27" x 17". This authentic vintage map has a blank verso or back side and beautiful coloring on sturdy paper. This map is truly a fine piece of New York history just prior to the American Civil War. This map would make a fine addition to any collection or for beautiful display in home or office decoration.
