Description: (NEW YORK CITY.) Viele, Egbert. Sanitary and Topographical Map of the City and Island of New York Prepared for the Council of Hygiene & Public Health, of the Citizens'' Association. Hand-colored lithographed map on two sheets joined. 19 1/4x63 3/4 inches paper size, originally folding, mounted on early linen and wooden dowels; light toning in spots, mild fissures and cracking at right edge, moderate rippling, end-cap of front roller lost. New York, 1865

Notes: Viele''s "Water Map" depicts the original watercourses of Manhattan as they appeared before the city''s metropolitan development. The map famously endures, still being consulted by today''s city contractors and engineers to determine the stability of what lies beneath proposed new building sites.
