James Miller
Miller's New Map of the City of New York
New York: James Miller. Condition: Very Good. Although some might date this 1857, which is the Act of Congress date on this map, Rumsey notes that it first appeared in a Phelps guide in 1857; this might be its first separate printing, and he dates this printing to 1860, see Rumsey 2133.002. In original pebbled brown cloth binding, the colored map measures approximately 30 x 16 inches, the sheet measures 32 x 17 inches. Very good, slight separation at a few of the cross folds. One of the first maps to show Central Park, which opened officially in 1857 (there were maps printed in 1856 of Central Park), with Olmsted and Vaux hired in 1858 to keep working on it.
