[CATSKILLS] SCHILE, H. Panorama of Catskill Mountains N.Y.
New York: "Publischt" [sic] by H. Schile, [circa 1881]. Printed lithographically on thin card, 23 x 29 inches (58 x 73 cm), with a central panoramic view of the Southeastern Catskills taken from "Mt. Hope" (though that name is no longer used today, the viewpoint is likely Ticetonyck Mountain) surrounded by six vignettes of notable views. Pale staining to the head of the print, one corner with a small chip.
Likely printed as a promotional piece for the Ulster and Delaware Railroad, whose trains feature prominently in each of the vignettes; also shown in two vignettes is the Grand Hotel on Monka Hill in Highland, built in 1881 by the railroad (closed 1996). FirstSearch lists only the American Antiquarian Society copy. Peters America on Stone p. 359 (not illustrated).
