Condition: Very Good/Not Issued


New York: G. W Bromley & Co., 1928. 1928 Edition (original, not a facsimile). VERY GOOD. A clean, unmarked copy. Light marginal toning to pages, otherwise pages are near fine. Bound in brown cloth hardcover with titles stamped in red on front cover. Cover is worn with most of spine cloth missing or detaching, front and rear boards clean, moderately rubbed. Binding is intact but tender. The 4-page Street Index is loose but present. (It appears to have been intentionally removed from the binding, but is laid into the book, those pages edgeworn.) Book block is otherwise intact. Interior hinges are lined with reinforcing tape and hinges will probably last for some time with considerate handling. This is a large Folio, measuring 13 x 16-1/2". The book is superlatively produced with 169 full-page plates: hand-colored maps detailing streets and buildings color-keyed for type of structures (e.g. wood, brick, etc.) lot sizes and numbers, number of stories of each building…also providing names of apartment buildings and commercial properties. Parks are colored in green and water courses, reservoirs in blue. Line work shows trolley lines, water lines, sewers, fire hydrants and more. A Block Index is pasted to the inside front cover and there is also the above-mentioned 4-page Street Index. There are also 4 pages of color maps preceding the plates that provide an overview of The Bronx (from South Bronx to the Northern border with Yonkers) as well as the "key" to colors and graphic markings. Very scarce!. Hardcover. Very Good/Not Issued. Folio.
