Description


Very detailed map of New Barbadoes and Midland Townships, New Jersey, in 1876, showing roads and property boundaries and owners' names. Notable too is the early depiction of school district boundaries in a state that today publicizes the high quality of its schools in the context of property values. On verso appear absolutely lovely lithographic views of the First Reformed Church of Hackensack, and the County Court House and Jail of Hackensack (plates 42 & 39, respectively, on facing pages). Published as plates 40-41 in Walker & Pease' exquisite 'topographical, illustrated, historical, descriptive' Atlas of Bergen County, New Jersey, 1876.
