HILL, JOHN WILLIAM (after) New York.
New York: F. & G.W. Smith, 1855 or later. Large hand-colored engraving and aquatint by C. Mottram (third state, without the word "Proof" in lower margin). Approximately 34 1/2 x 54 inches (87.5 x 137 cm); framed. Lightly toned, a few creases but an attractive example, not examined out of frame.
This expansive view, one of largest of New York ever produced, depicts the city from across the East River in Brooklyn. The busy life of the New York's waterways are suggested by the dozens of ships visible in the foreground as well as up the Hudson.
