New York

Geo R. Holbrook & Company



160 pp. Folding map. 10.4x7.8 cm (4x3"), original printed wrappers. 

Rare pocket-size mid-19th century transportation guide. The map shows New England on one side, and New York City on the other. The map is glued to the inside of the front wrapper, affecting part of the New York map. OCLC/WorldCat lists only one copy of this August 1850 issue, and the University of Michigan, though there are three other institutions with unspecified runs of the Holbrook guide.
