Samuel Holland's manuscript plan of the City of New York is one of the most important early surveys of the City. The map shows streets, government offices, markets, two schools, a synagogue and Jewish cemetery, churches, the fort, and two wharves.
Holland prepared the map while serving as the Surveyor General for the Northern District during the colonial period. The map appears as an inset map at the top of Thomas Jeffery's The Provinces of New York, and New Jersey; with part of Pensilvania, published in London in 1776.
Condition: This folding map is in B+ condition. Thin paper with some minute separations along fold lines, all of which have been reinforced with archival material on the verso.
