Genuine Antique Hand Colored Map


Maker: Beers, Comstock & Cline.

Antique, hand colored map of Long Island from the Atlas of Long Island, NY by Beers, Comstock, & Cline, 1873. This map was in the atlas as a folded map. This map shows each town delineated by color, as well as the counties delineated by thick pink lines. In 1873 Nassau County did not yet exist-- it was founded in 1899-- so this map only has Kings County, Queens County, and Suffolk County. Other features of interest include New York City, Gardiners Island, and Fishers Island. The lines that criss-cross the map show longitude and latitude, and also the radial distance from the City Hall of New York City. This map is highly collectible. Very good restored condition. Fold lines are apparent. Some light minor staining. Map has been cleaned, de-acidified, and backed on tissue for stability. Some minor paper loss at edges but would not be noticeable when framed. Approx. 13.5 x 51.5 inches to the neatline. **SOLD**
