This is a original 1865 map of Manhattan done by Egbert Viele. It is titled the Sanitary & Topological map of the city and island of New York.This seems to be quite rare as we could find no print or map dealer's with a copy for sale.We did find a full size reprint edition for $1395.00.This is in quite nice condition for a 1865 folded map.It was printed in two sections and there is some discoloration from the backing tape or paper in the center with a old small tear at the top center now backed with the tape.There is also a small tear in the area of the title as shown in my photos. All in all this is in quite good condition for a map of this type. Size is 64 by 19 and frame size is 66 by 21 1/2. This is a modern frame that some one had done recently and the glazing is plexiglass.
