The Museum of the City of New York has a complete bound set, and the New York Historical Society has a complete set of the plates, unbound. Samuel Hollyer, 1826-1919, was born in England and worked as an engraver in both England and the US. In his career of almost seventy years, he did portrait engravings of literary figures, landscapes, and book illustrations. The Old New York views are the work for which he is primarily remembered, as they picture many structures which had already vanished when he published his work, or which are no longer standing now, and for which his engraving is now a primary record. "Samuel Hollyer's Old New York views were created at the turn of the twentieth century to recall sites and scenes in the city and the Hudson River Valley that had largely disappeared in the previous three centuries. The images are historically important sites, houses, taverns, churches, forts, theaters, and public buildings (NY Historical Society Guide to Samuel Hollyer's Old New York Views 1901-1912, NYHS, NY 2003, NYU Libraries, publisher)."
