Braunschweig: Bollmann Bildkarten Verlag, N.d. [1962], Colored lithograph map printed on paper, 27.5 x 21.5 inches. A fine copy on heavy paper, unmounted, unfolded. The great map of mid-century Manhattan based on thousands of aerial photographs (reproduced with a forgivable lack of fidelity), showing axonometric representations of every building in mid-town Manhattan from the Central Park to approximately 20th St. The map was commissioned for exhibition at the 1964 World's Fair, and Bollmann reproduced it in a smaller scale for his multilingual New York guidebook. That is the most common version of the map; this lithographed edition is on heavy stock for mounting as a poster. Though slightly smaller than the folding map it is cleaner and not cluttered with names and logos of stores, restaurants, and tourist attractions like the larger map; and, of course, has no folds. (Manhattan in Maps p. 152; The Greatest Grid 177) (Item ID: 010395)
