New York: Julius Bien & Co., 1895.
Map. Color lithograph. 36" x 25".
Very detailed map of Essex County and the Adirondack Mountains. Shows from the southern border of Essex County, Bullhead Mountain being the southernmost mountain shown. Extends up to Port Kent and shows Burlington, VT on the other side of the river. The majority of the High Peaks Wilderness is located in Essex County. Notations and coloring show both political boundaries and elevation. 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.
