This is a fine print reproduction of a superb example of the 1961 re-issue of Courtland Smith’s pictorial map of Long Island, from Brooklyn and Queens to the Hamptons and Montauk. Landmarks such as Montauk Lighthouse, the beach at Southampton, and the Fire Island Light, Jones Beach, and Coney Island are shown along the south shore.

The Atlantic Ocean and Long Island Sound are decorated with various pictorial illustrations including a striped bass, swordfish, spouting whale, the Sag Harbor Whaler ship, and a Boston Boat. The border is intricately decorated with underwater scenes at the top and important sites and historical scenes on the sides and bottom, that include the settlement of Brooklyn and building of Brooklyn Bridge, Rum Row (referencing prohibition), deep sea whaling, the building of the Monitor in the Brooklyn Naval Yard, and the initial discovery by Hendrick Hudson in 1609 to name a few.

A key just left of a magnificent compass rose indicates radio stations, state parks, ferry lines, small light houses, and mainland.

What can be referred to as modern cartography has been around for over 550 years. Throughout that time an enormous amount of new land was discovered, cities were founded while others perished. International trade and travel became the norm, political borders were ever-changing, and numerous wars were waged. With all that being said, hundreds of thousands of maps were created that show such events and episodes in time.
