In presenting its second historical brochure, the Bank of the Manhattan Company directs attention to a subject always of interest to the city of New York. In the space at its command only a bird's-eye view can be given of the Ships and Shipping of Old New York from the days of the first Dutch traders to the end of that remarkable era of maritime development when the American clipper ships carried the bulk of the oversea trade and were the admiration of every port.
