7½ x 5¾ art decorated cloth hardcover. Illustrated with more than 450 historic black and white views of Old New York City.Exterior as shown in photo. Pages are clean and complete.
No torn, loose or missing pages. All things considered, a good example of this very rare New York City title.
Here is an incredible 125-year-old collection of photographs of New York City as it looked in 1895, published by the 19th-century's leading producer of New York photo views, Moses King. Most photos are presented in full-page size, with a sponsorship ad on the facing page (in most cases advertising for the firm whose building/store/other is featured in the photograph). Without question, this is the finest period collection of old New York photos that I have ever seen.Among the buildings and storefronts included in this volume are names you'll instantly recognize -- Lord & Taylor, Brentano's, Delmonico's, Tiffany, Brooks Brothers, Westinghouse -- and many more that have fallen through the cracks of time. You'll see the famous financial institutions of Wall Street, the great newspaper publishing houses of Park Row, the wharves and warehouses of Fulton St. The opulent residences of Fifth Avenue, legendary hotels like the Plaza, the Waldorf, the Dakota and many others. There are photographic views of Blackwell's Island, the Battery, Madison Square Garden, Broadway, the churches of Manhattan, the factories of Brooklyn, the steamships of the North River and so much more! Description of to-day makes history of the future. Accurate pictures are the most vivid descriptions. They are so arranged as to form a practical route-guide book.
The stranger who will follow the route or order of these pictures will see the city in the easiest and shortest manner. Copies of this book are vanishing into personal libraries, becoming more and more scarce with each passing year. In order to give you the most accurate description of this very rare and highly collectible 116-year-old book, I have provided some helpful details below. For your convenience, I have arranged them in categories (although as I said earlier, they appear by street in the book).
At the bottom of this page, you can see some of the photos for yourself. I hope you'll take a few moments to have a look.
