Series I: Old New York, Volume I

Scope and Contents note

Series I. Volume I holds sixty-five prints engraved by Hollyer between 1901 and 1905, and issued in a set under the title OLD NEW YORK/VIEWS/BY/S. HOLLYER/New York, 1905. The images are of historically important sites, houses, taverns, forts, theaters, and public buildings dating from 1653 (the Water Gate, a gate and blockhouse in lower Manhattan) to 1899 (the Dewey Arch). Over half of the images represent 19th-century sites, with most of the remainder from the 18th century. Castle Garden, Fraunces' Tavern, and the Tombs Prison are pictured in this series.

Prints in Series I are arranged by numbers in the order established by the text issued with the prints.
