Viii, [2], 150 pages, well illustrated, cloth, DJ, very good. 9 by 12 inches. Stated first edition.

It was a meticulous evocation, in text and drawings and in great detail, of how Manhattan was built from the ground up. His story progresses from the mastodons, to the Paleo-Indians of about 7,000 years ago, then to the Algonquin-speaking inhabitants of the island when the first Europeans arrived to found New Amsterdam. Eventually it shows how structures like subways and ever-higher buildings gave Manhattan its modern shape. Chapters detail the work of architects, construction methods and vital city services." ; 150 pages
