Description

Beautiful, antique map of the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York. This is an authentic map taken from the rare GH Hopkins "Detailed Estate & Old Farm Line Atlas of the City of Brooklyn" published in 1880 & is NOT a computer reproduction. See what Brooklyn looked like 140 years ago, during a time of rapid urbanization. Lots of charming, intricate details & contours, including old farm owner's names & land property lines as well as geographical points of interest. All streets are named & buildings numbered. It is a large map & will be a showpiece wherever it is presented. Verso is blank. Perfect for the historian, map-lover, the curious or just as a conversation starter. Wonderful & rare. Vintage maps such as these make great gifts. Edition of 1880, printed 1880 Dimensions: 26 1/2" width x 18 1/2" height Condition: Good or "Very Vintage" condition, commensurate with age. This map is in great shape for being 140 years old. Has some real wear, toning, foxing, coloring, small missing areas where tabs were on margins & a fold as-issued, but this will flatten easily & all will read as vintage character when framed. (Images of atlas cover & frontispiece shown for information only & not included.) We will happily adjust shipping price for multiple purchases. Maps are rolled up & shipped in sturdy mailing tubes, never folded.
