Rare and extraordinary Bird's Eye View Map of New York to Boston, a broad vista showing the Hudson River, Long Island, Manhattan, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts, including Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, with lovely detail, showing steamship lines, lighthouses, waterways, landmarks, and noting major points of interest. When this map was published, long distance travel was done primarily by boat or train, so this map focuses on railroads and steamship routes, but some major roads are included in white. Folding map, fair to good antique condition, with foxing and some additional folds, mild overall toning. Measures approx. 9.25 x 28.25 inches to the edge of the image or 10.75 x 29.5 inches to the paper edges unfolded.
