City of Louisville.
1872 (dated) 7.5 x 10 in (19.05 x 25.4 cm)
This is a charming view of the city of Louisville, Kentucky issued by Appleton in 1872. It features a view of the Ohio River with bridge with the buildings of Louisville in background. The foreground shows the riverbank and pier with fishermen and boats. The view was drawn by Asa Coolidge Warren, and engraved by E. P. Brandard and ‘Entered according to Act of Congress A.D. 1872 by D. Appleton and Co. in the Office of the Librarian of Congress of Washington’.
D. Appleton (fl. 1830 - 1860) was a New York based map publisher operating in the middle part of the 19th century. His most common publications were school geography texts published under his own name or the name of his associate S. S. Cornell. He also published a series of pocket maps relating to the Civil War and a few lesser known wall maps.
Very good. Minor spotting in margins.
