From the 1868 edition of Joseph Shannon's Manual of the Corporation of the City of New York. (Commonly known as "Shannon's Manual"; on the map it is called "The New York Manual 1868.") Map by W. C. Rogers & Co., Lithographers (not so marked on work; established by reference source; see notes.)

Printed sheet, ca. 12-5/8" high x ca. 16-3/4" wide (originally folded to 8-1/4" high x 4-1/4" wide; fold marks present); map image is circa 12" x 16"; hand colored. One paper repair to lower left where a margin was trimmed along with one tear and one broken fold mended with clear adhesive tape and which appear stable. Tidelines evident from the hand watercolors used.

The book that this map is from was similiar to the better known Valentine's Manual, but apparently a slightly larger format (note folded size.)
