Beautiful exterior as shown in photos; rear cover has some mottling in lower corner. Pages are clean and complete. No torn, loose or missing pages. When it comes to turn-of-the-century photos of New York City, there was no one more famous than Moses King, who not only published annual viewbooks like the one being auctioned here, but also postcards, pamphlets and guidebooks. It contains a total of 450 illustrations, most of them photos, the rest illustrations made from photos (so close to photos in appearance I frequently had to squint to tell the difference).
It's a stunning collection of views sure to excite any New York City architectural scholar, history buff or photo collector. Skyscrapers and other buildings, bridges, street scenes, steamships, parks and museums, churches, schools, hospitals and much, much more. All with informative descriptive captions.
