Title : New York from Bergen Hill - Hoboken..
Map maker : SULMAN, T..
Date : London, 1876.
Size : 17.5 x 45.5 inches. / 44.5 x 115.5 cm.
Colouring : Uncoloured

Description :A large and detailed view of New York City issued in the year of America's centennial as an "extra supplement" to the Illustrated London News (Aug. 19, 1876).
From the vantage point atop New Jersey's Bergen Hill, a maturing Central Park is shown amidst the early stages of urban expansion on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side.
New York is depicted as a busy port city, with a variety of boats active in the Hudson and East Rivers. Brooklyn, Queens and Northern New Jersey are also shown with City Hall, the financial district, Greenwich village, Chinatown, The Battery, Tribeca and Roosevelt Island all identified.
Of historical note are the two towers of the Brooklyn Bridge completed in 1875, but there is no progress shown yet connecting the towers across the east River.
The map is a wood block engraving by Robert Loudan after Thomas Sulman in 1876. A couple of these maps are currently available on the Internet in the $4,900 - $6,800 range but one sold by Christies Auction House in June, 2015 for $12,500.
Thomas Sulman (1834 Ė1900) was an English Architectural draftsman. Sulman studied at The Working Menís College between 1854 and 1858, where he was a student of, and later an engraver for, Dante Gabriel Rossetti.
He became a specialist in using balloons to produce birds-eye views of cities including London, Oxford, Glasgow and New York City. These views, as hand-coloured engravings produced with the help of London engraver Robert Loudan Sr., were featured in The Illustrated London News from the 1860's, and were sometimes produced to a fold-out, six foot in length.

Condition : The map is in poor condition, missing the bottom left corner. Fortunately, the part missing is Bergen Hill and not New York City proper. Fold splits and minor tears have been repaired on verso.
All folds have been backed with Japan paper for support.
Interestingly, the key is not available with other examples of this map currently for sale.
