New York. Humphrey Phelps. - The Great Metropolis. Phelp's New York City Guide ...

NY, Gaylord Watson 1874. Small octavo publisher's printed orange boards (some scuffing); 72pp and large folding handcoloured map (405x720mm), wood engraved frontispiece and illustrations throughout. The guide book is a bit used but there are only a couple of small holes in the folds of the map, a surprisingly good crisp copy. ¶ "From this great centre radiates - by telegraph, steamers, and railroads - new fashions and follies, daily ... and what is said or done is sought after with eagerness by the thirty millions of freemen," says the introductory note. Whatever else has changed in the city, smug self regard hasn't budged in a hundred and fifty years.
