Aquatint with fine hand color; excellent condition. Rare. An exquisite aquatint view of New York City and Harbor as seen from Weehawken, New Jersey, a popular vantage point for early views of the city. In the foreground are picnickers in a sylvan setting on the heights overlooking a ship-filled harbor and busy port city. The view evokes the majestic sweep New York's spacious, double-bayed harbor, and the subtle shading effects of the aquatint process are can be seen in rendering of cloud formations, in the delicacy of the large tree in the foreground, and in the play of light on the water. In the view the steeples of churches still dominate the skyline of the city. The appearance of the dome on the Merchants' Exchange seen in the southern extreme of the city, however, helps date the depiction. It was completed in 1827 but destroyed by fire in December 1835. Further, there is no trace on the view of the tower of the Presbyterian Church on Wall Street, which was destroyed by fire in September 1834 but rebuilt in 1835. Stokes, I.N.P. Iconography, III, p. 614, pl. 110; Deak, G.G. Picturing America, no. 433; Stokes & Haskell American Historical Prints, c.1834-E-38, pp. 78-79. N° de ref. de la librería 9570
