Item Description: G. W. Bromley & Co., New York, 1925. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good+. Dust Jacket Condition: Not Issued. 1925 edition. VERY GOOD+. Pages are near fine; lightly toned along the outside margins but otherwise clean and unmarked, the colors clear and bright. Two leaves have short closed tears at bottom edge, but otherwise pages are exceptionally fine. Black cloth hardcover, red stamped title on front, is clean, moderately rubbed along edges and hinges. Cloth is frayed at spine ends, corners and several spots on the outside edges. Binding intact though loose, the hinges wobbly. All pages are firmly held. The book should stand gentle use for some time but would benefit from a professional binding reinforcement. An extraordinarily detailed record of Manhattan in a series of 191 maps clearly showing the streets and outlines of each and every structure, every park, every railroad track including elevated railroads, water and sewer pipes and even fire hydrants, from Battery Park to 228th Street. Even more miraculously, details about the buildings are supplied through ingenious keys. Clearly noted are the number of stories, the depth of the building, presence of basements, of storefronts, and elevators. Even structure (brick, frame or iron covered) is indicated by coloring. Each of the plates has been meticulously hand-tinted in pinks, blues, yellows - and greens if a park is present. To help the user navigate the maps a 1-page Block Index (printed on the front pasted endpaper), 4-page Street Index and 5-Page Map Index (which include the "Explanations" or keys) are provided at the front of the book. The 191 plates follow. Book measures 16-3/4 x 11-3/4". An unusually well-preserved copy of this scarce, very desirable work. Additional photos available on request. Size: Folio.
