KLEMM, Josef. [Early 20th century bird's-eye view of Manhattan]
New-York. Ad. Lehmann's geogr. Charakterbilder. Leipzig: F. E. Wachsmutg, c.1908. Chromolithograph on two sheets, inages 615 x 820mm & 615 x 825mm, total if joined 615 x 1645mm. Margins covered with tape.
A scarce bird's-eye view of Manhattan and greater New York, by Austrian painter Josef Ferdinand Klemm (1868-1916). With the Statue of Liberty bottom right, it shows Manhattan north to Inwood Hill Park. The Singer Building (briefly the tallest building in the world) is shown but the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company Tower is not, suggesting a date of 1908 for the painting.
