John Randel's Cadastral map of Manhattan, approximately 1815
Maps - M10.1.10a-d
This cadastral map of Manhattan in 26 sections on 13 sheets appears to be a draft of another map printed in Sackersdorff, Otto. Maps of farms, commonly called the Blue Book 1815 (New York: 1868). The map shows property lines and owners’ names, some existing roads and projected streets, and shows relief by hachures. Pen-and-ink, watercolor on paper. Sackersdorff gives the date of the manuscript map as circa 1815. Attributed to Randel by the cataloger; for provenance, see Stokes, I.N.P. Iconography of Manhattan Island, v. 3, p. 565.
