Description: (NEW YORK CITY.) Havell, Jr., Robert. Panoramic View of New York (Taken from the North River). Aquatint with original hand-coloring on wove paper watermarked "JWhatman/Turkey Mill". 11x34 inches, sheet size; light toning and mat stain, minimal foxing and surface soiling, edges of verso with remnants of brown paper from an earlier mounting. New York: Robert Havell, 1840

Notes: Very rare first state of Havell''s gorgeous panorama of New York. One of the artist''s first projects in New York after relocating to the city from London shortly after his completion of John James Audubon''s Birds of America. The pleasing nature of this print is especially communicated by the fine quality of aquatinting and hand-coloring that was employed by Havell. American Historical Prints E-120; Catalogue of the William Sloane Collection 19.
