Cadiz - Vista de Cadiz - Maker: Perrot
Antique, beautifully colored view of Cadiz, Spain, by Perrot, 1850. Published by Turgis. Cadiz is an ancient port city in southwest Spain, on a strip of land surrounded by the sea. A 16th-century base for exploration and trade, it has more than 100 watchtowers, including iconic Torre Tavira, traditionally used for spotting ships. Cadiz is also the oldest continuously inhabited city in Spain and one of the oldest in Western Europe. This antique print shows a view from San Sebastian with the many towers of the city as will as many ships and a calm blue sky above. Very good antique condition, currently framed in an old frame that has some damage, will be sold unframed unless customer requests frame (no additional cost for frame, but shipping will cost more). Approx. 16.25 x 24.5 to edge of colored image, approx. 25.5 x 31.25 framed. Please forgive the slight glare and my reflection in the glass in the photos.

Map of Long Island *****SOLD***** - Maker: Beers, Comstock & Cline
Antique, hand colored map of Long Island from the Atlas of Long Island, NY by Beers, Comstock, & Cline, 1873. This map was in the atlas as a folded map. This map shows each town delineated by color, as well as the counties delineated by thick pink lines. In 1873 Nassau County did not yet exist-- it was founded in 1899-- so this map only has Kings County, Queens County, and Suffolk County. Other features of interest include New York City, Gardiners Island, and Fishers Island. The lines that criss-cross the map show longitude and latitude, and also the radial distance from the City Hall of New York City. This map is highly collectible. Very good restored condition.
