“BOSTON” Thomas Gamaliel Bradford. Boston: Weeks, Jordan and Co., c. 1838. (Image: 11 ¼ x 14 3/8’’)
Very fine & beautifully engraved map with original hand-coloring. Engraved by G. W. Boynton (owner of an engraving company in Boston 1830’s - 40’s). From An Illustrated Atlas, Geographical, Statistical and Historical of the United States and Adjacent Countries by T. G. Bradford.
This exceptionally detailed city plan depicts Boston with streets, railroads, monuments, and the “State Prison” identified. Ferries, wharfs, rope walks and bridges are also located. A very interesting and very scarce view of the city as it existed in the 1830’s.
