Above the Clouds and Old New York; A Historical Sketch of the Site and a Description of the Many Wonders of the Woolworth Building

New York: Hugh McAtamney, 1913. First edition. Decorated Wraps, beige w/gilt design & lettering. Small quarto, pp. 29, illustrated with b/w and color drawings. Very good. Item #19450

A beautifully illustrated volume published for distribution among the visitors to Woolworth Tower in New York City. The text discusses the history of New York City from its Dutch roots in the 1600s, and illustrated with photographs of the Woolworth building. One photograph is modified to show the location of some of the 26 Otis elevators in the building. Scarce! We've never seen a copy of this before.

Price: $50.00
