SULMAN, Thomas. [A highly-detailed prospect of Manhattan]

An impressive prospect of Manhattan Island, drawn by Thomas Sulman and engraved by Robert Loudan for a supplement to the Illustrated London News, celebrating the centennial of the United States. The elevated viewpoint of Bergen Hill allows the grid street plan to be visible. On the left is Central Park, showing Olmstead's redesign as completed in 1873, three years before this prospect was published. On the right is Brooklyn, with the two towers of Brooklyn Bridge shown, seven years before it opened. On the Hudson and East rivers are illustrations of river traffic including paddle steamers. The Illustrated London News was the world's first illustrated weekly news magazine, founded in 1842, using wood-engraving to produce illustrations cost-effectively. To make subscriptions more attractive the publishers regularly issued 'supplements' for subscribers only, with a larger format illustration, often city prospects such as this.

Towns with one paper, more than one paper, and those with daily and weekly papers are numbered 1-3. Published in the last decade of the 19th century this is an unusual artefact of the early years of the American advertising industry. Guild boasted that he was able to "place advertising business in any place the world over" (Brooklyn Life, 1894).
