Produced by one of the most prolific map illustrators of the nineteenth century, Lucien Burleigh, this stunning depiction of Catskill bears a unique aesthetic and distinctive style that immediately transports the viewer back in time. More than one hundred and sixty of his works have been included in the Library of Congress, and his career spanned more than four decades. The birds-eye perspective was a widely popular style in the nineteenth century and was used to promote notable civic features to attract residents and merchants alike. Because these were not intended to be accurate maps for geographical purposes, the sense of scale is often distorted, giving them their signature look.
First settled in 1680, Catskill was officially established in 1788 and would go on to incorporate Woodstock in 1800. Located on the banks of the iconic Hudson River, the city became a popular destination for New Yorkers looking to escape the bustle of the town during the summer months. Settlement in the region was spurred by Dutch immigrants who established numerous mills and other manufacturing plants that would thrive during the nineteenth century.
The Catskill Mountains are known for their pastoral beauty, numerous rivers and lakes, and vast forests that attract visitors during the changing of the seasons. Though the town contained only ten houses at the conclusion of the American Revolution by 1889, it had grown significantly and was the county seat of Greene County. This is an authentic piece of American cartographical history by one of the most prolific illustrators.
