THE ORIGINS OF NEW YORK
The oldest View and the oldest Plan of New York, reproduced to the original format, in full-colour collotype, print format ca. 63x45 cm, limited edition of 500 numbered copies, in hand-made portfolio, with 64 page companion volume by Jan van Bracht and Prof. Gunther Schilder.
These two fundamental documents concerning the Origins of New York are now brought together again in a unique facsimile edition, realized with the permission of the Dutch and Italian governments.
The map and the view are reproduced in full-colour collotype. This difficult and expensive printing process enable us to achieve absolutely faithful and accurate reproductions of the originals.
The absence of a screen between camera and original ensures that even the finest details correspond exactly with the hand-drawn originals.
