Hermann BOLLMANN (1911-1971, cartographer). ƒ?? PICTORIAL MAPS Inc. (publishers). New York Map Guide. Picture Map in Full Color

Hermann BOLLMANN (1911-1971, cartographer). – PICTORIAL MAPS Inc. (publishers).


New York Map Guide. Picture Map in Full Color. [New York: circa 1962/3]. Tall octavo (9 ¼ x 4 5/8ins; 235 x 117mm ), pp.[1-]2-45[-48]. Text in 6 languages, 1 double-page illustration. 1 large folding two-sided colored map unbound (as issued, in flap at the rear of the booklet). Original pictorial wrappers with flap. Condition: binding a little soiled and rubbed.


West German printing of the folding two-sided map (sheet size:, 42 ½ x 33 ¾ins; 1080 x 858mm). Recto: ‘New York / No. 40 . Created by Herman Bollmann for Pictorial Maps, Inc. / 91 Warren Street, New York City. Printed by Busche, Dortmund / New York Picture Map … / Printed in Western Germany.’; Verso: ‘City of New York / the Five Boroughs’. Coloured lithographed folding map. Condition: some splitting at junctures of folds, very good. Retailer: The Hammond Map Store, Inc. / one east 43rd Street / New York 17, N.Y.There are at least two versions of the large folding map: one printed by Busche Verlag I Dortmund in West Germay, and a second printed in the U.S. by the Barnes Press: I am not certain which one takes precedence.


“Hermann Bollmann (1911-1971) was a German cartographer who brought his training as a graphic artist to bear on the German tradition of Vogelschaukarten (bird's-eye-view maps). A version of this pictorial map of New York City was included as part of the "Official World's Fair Edition" map and guide for the 1964 World's Fair. For this map Bollman's staff designed and built special cameras and took over 67,000 photographs of the city, 17,000 of which were from the air. The actual drawing was done by hand and is very accurate although streets are wider and some features are exaggerated for clarity. At the time of this map, over half the world's skyscrapers were in New York City. A folded copy tucked into a multilingual brochure, a guide to sights and destinations in New York City.” (Rumsey).


R.T. Augustyn & Paul E. Cohen. 1997. Manhattan in Maps 1527-1995. New York: Rizzoli. Pp. 152-153.
