Hand-colored engraving, folds into gilt embossed titled cloth covers, as issued. Pocket map for visitors to Brooklyn, New York, of typical format. Ward boundaries established in 1867 are numbered. Major streets are highlighted in pink, major parks and cemeteries are indicated in green. A small portion of what are now the Ridgewood and Glendale neighborhoods of Queens are shown, labeled "Newtown." The map cover is dated 1879, although the map itself is dated 1878 with a copyright of 1875. Members of the Beers family made a major contribution to 19th century American cartography. J.B. Beers & Company was founded in 1870 by James Botsford Beers (b. 1811) and his son, Frederick W. Beers. Another son, John Clark Beers, and his son James Lemuel Beers, also joined in the business. The Beers family members sometimes worked individually, and other times in collaboration with each other and/or with other surveyors and publishers. Between 1864 and 1885, the Beers family and collaborators produced more than 125 atlases, mostly of counties, in 10 states, including Vermont, Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York and Michigan, as well as city atlases, separately issued maps, and county histories. Frederick W. Beers lived in Brooklyn, where he was also employed as head of the map division in the Brooklyn Office of Public Records for 35 years. His long career continued until his retirement at the age of 90. Condition: Generally very good with the usual overall light toning, wear, soft creases. Folds as issued, now professionally re-backed on Japanese paper to reinforce weakness at folds and intersections. Covers very good with light wear. N° de ref. de la librería 100044

Descripción de la librería

George Glazer opened his art and antiques gallery in 1993, and since the beginning the emphasis has been on the themes of exploration and discovery as embodied by globes, prints, maps and art. The gallery's unusual ambiance reflects its owner -- scholarly and intellectual, but with an eye for the decorative and a sense of humor that revels in the offbeat. Featured items include: Antique World Globes -- huge selection; floor and table, terrestrial and celestial, orrerys and armillary spheres. Maps - - 19th C. American maps and atlases; celestial charts. Prints and Paintings -- botanical, bird, sporting, maritime, fashion and costume, architectural and horses. Books -- leather and colorplate.
