Black and white antique map and illustration from the Supplement to Harper's Weekly, June 15, 1872, showing a bird's eye view of Philadelphia, with beautiful detail, ships and boats in the harbor, etc. The Delware River is at bottom and the Schuylkill River is near top. Very good condition with light toning at edges, light toning at fold lines, a few minor spots, tape marks on side margins at folds, but with a mat these would not be apparent once framed. There is additional tape on the back of the map, we are unsure if it is archival. A page or two from Harper's Weekly is still attached to the upper left quadrant of the map on the back. With folds as issued. Map is very fragile, on light-weight paper that tears easily. Approx. 21 x 30 inches. If you are interested in this map and would like to discuss backing the map to make it less fragile, please contact us.
