Scarce, Informative Plan of Washington, D. C.
With Guide Book

Washington, D. C.. MCCLELLAND, D./ STREETER, E. S. [Washington, 1850]
Map Of The City Of Washington…. 13 x 17 inches
Lithographed folding map in excellent condition. [Bound with:] The Stranger’s Guide Or The Daguerreotype Of Washington, D. C. Compiled By E. S. Streeter. C. Alexander, Printer. 1850. In original, cloth over boards covers. 36pp., light foxing, else excellent.


A scarce, very well preserved folding plan of the capital city along with a detailed, insightful guide to the city. The plan, showing the city divided into seven wards, locates commercial properties such as hotels and markets in addition to the expected public buildings and churches. An inset map at lower left shows the city in regional context.
In addition to describing, as expected, the city’s chief structures, the guide book also provides a surprisingly in depth account of the city’s history and local ordinances, including the legal status of slaves.
