BAXTER, D. W. C. Market Street from Sixth to Seventh, (North side); [from] Baxter's Panoramic Business Directory of Philadelphia, for 1861. Phila.: Baxter & Neff, King & Baird, printers, . Broadside. 21" x 13.5". Very light toning; small closed tears to the upper board, not touching image or text. Below the visual directory is a single bold advt. for S. S. Rennels, Confectioner and Fruiterer. In very good condition. Baxter's Panoramic Business Directory of Philadelphia was an ambitious and arguably misguided venture in that it created a directory that while visually engaging was ultimately unwieldy for day to day use. "Baxter published the Panoramic Business Directory on his own and under the name of Baxter & Neff. In 1857 the directory was copyrighted by Baxter & Neff. Between 1859 and 1861 the images were printed by King & Baird and tinted in colors. In 1879 and 1880 most images were produced with A. C. Weaver & Co. (a publishing firm operating from the same office as Baxter)" (Historical Society of Pennsylvania). Remarkable rare to find complete, even individual plates are uncommon in commerce.
