Description

Scarce map of Cincinnati, colored by wards, published by M.R. Burgheim of Cincinnati.

The title on the map cover is "Guide Map of Cincinnati, Covington, Newport, Bellevue, Dayton, Ludlow and Bromley . . . "

The Burgheim firm created a number of maps of Cincinnati in the 1870s and 1880s, all of which are quite rare on the market.

Of note, Burgheim appears to have published its maps and guidebooks of Cincinnati in German in the 1880s and 1890s.

Rarity

OCLC locates 2 copies of the map, Cincinnati Historical Society (1876) and Cincinnati Public Library (1877 ca).
