Albany is the capital city of New York State. Julius Bien (1826-1909) was an American lithographic printer and cartographer based in New York City. During the course of the second half of the 19th century, he produced thousands of maps for both public and private publishers. Some of his most notable commissions were for the U.S. government, including many geological maps that redefined the cartographic visualization of geology. Bien's prolific output and contributions to the development of chromolithography make him one of the most significant map printers of his time.
Condition: Very Good
