Welcome to New York! I hope you're for the Colonies, we've got too many Tories to tar and feather as it is! This map is a beautiful piece of work suitable for use as a poster map or a beautiful computer background.

Antique Maps XXVII - New York of the 1700s details the City of New York in the 1700's, as General Washington and the Founding Fathers may have seen it. This map could have been found in any period military officers collection. And would be perfect for those attempting to lay siege to the city! The text on the map is legible, if you zoom in.

Potential uses for this map include:
* Modern day treasure hunt for a lost payroll intended for the British Army!
* With a little image editing, it's a perfect map set for any fantasy city!
* Drop the plans for an invasion of New York by the Tories into your players laps!
And many more, limited only by your imagination!

A good-quality scan of a map that's pictorially attractive, at least. The cartographer has spent a lot of time on texture. A relatively small amount of functional information, mostly by way of labels in French.<br><br><b>QUALITY</b [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
