J.L. Smith. "Smith's New Map of Philadelphia and Vicinity".
Philadelphia: J.L. Smith, 1875. 26 1/4 x 42 1/2. Lithograph. Two part, separately issued folding map expertly joined. Old and new repairs with linen tape along some folds. Numerous folds reinforced with linen tape to prevent separation. Some wear in map along folds as to be expected. Small stain above title. Minor buckling of map, as to be expected, from being repaired and joined. With original gold stamped buckram front and back cover. Else, very good condition for a folding map.
A large map of Philadelphia and the regions to the north as far as North Wales, to the east as far as Moorestown, and to the west just beyond Downingtown. Major streets and some buildings are shown in the city, including the site of the Centennial celebration. Extensive information is given for the surrounding area, including roads, rivers, rail lines, mills, hotels, meeting houses, and myriad other geographic details. Interestingly, the map errs by including Montgomery County's Cheltenham Township within the Philadelphia County line.
