Catalogue Note

THE MOST IMPORTANT STATE MAP OF NEW YORK OF THE EARLY NINETEENTH CENTURY.

Based upon surveys authorized by the legislature, Burr's map was essentially the first official state map of New York, a fact that was emphasized by a notice on the first edition of 1830 (the present is the third edition): "Published by [order of] Simeon de Witt Surveyor General [of the State of New York] Pursuant to an act of the Legislature." A second edition appeared in 1834. The publication rights were subsequently purchased by Stone & Clark, who in 1841 brought out this new updated version of the map. In all editions it was the most accurate and detailed of New York for the period. Among the insets are a large plan of Manhattan and smaller plans of Syracuse, Hudson, Oswego, Poughkeepsie, Ithaca, Utica, Rochester, Schenectady, Lockport, Auburn, Buffalo, Albany, and Troy, as well as a fine engraving of the Erie Canal at Little Falls. This 1841 edition is not in Phillips' America, nor in Rumsey.
