Yes, the SDUK was a real thing! They were founded in 1826 with the purpose of sharing affordable, useful information to those who chose to self-educate.
This map shows most of the built-up parts of Manhattan and small parts of some other boroughs, including Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Jersey City.
This map looks amazing at all sizes, from 12x16 inches (30x40cm) to 16x20 inches (40x50cm), 18x24 inches (45x60cm) and beyond to 24x36 inches (60x90cm). It looks particularly amazing at large sizes. I can print it at sizes up to 70 inches (180cm) wide.
Please get in touch if you'd like a larger, framed or custom version of this map.

You can order the map itself, or you can order a framed version. The frame is a nice, simple black frame that really makes our maps pop out when on a wall. Please get in touch if you'd like a different frame. We use super-clear acrylic (perspex/acrylite) in our frames - it's less reflective than glass and better for transport.
If you are not happy with your unique map for any reason, contact me for a no-quibble refund.

I use a unique process to restore my maps that is massively time consuming and labour intensive. Hunting down the original maps can take months. I use state of the art and eye-wateringly expensive technology to scan and restore the maps. As a result, I guarantee my maps are a cut above the rest - that's why I can offer a no-quibble refund.
Almost all of my maps look amazing at large sizes (200cm, 6.5ft+) and I can frame and deliver them to you as well, via special oversized courier. Contact me to discuss your specific needs.
