Introduction 

DAVID T. VALENTINE 

OUR city's chronicler" is the honora- 
ble title bestowed upon Mr. David 
Thomas Valentine by his contempo- 
rary, the genial gentleman, popular physician, 
and entertaining local historian, Dr. John W. 
Francis. The pity of it is, that Mr. Valentine 
did not appear earlier upon the scene in the 
role he filled so admirably, for the custodians of 
the City's records before his advent, apparently 
had little or no conception of the historical 
value of the papers committed to their care, and 
were far from being Cerberean in their watch- 
fulness, to judge from the number of valuable 
municipal documents that found their way, from 
time to time, into second-hand book- and print- 
shops, and so passed on into the outstretched 
hands of covetous autograph- and relic-hunters. 
Mr. Valentine comments on this negligence 
in the care and keeping of the Dutch records 



INTRODUCTION 

of the City in a letter written to Mr. Henry B. 
Dawson, Editor of the " Historical Magazine," 
dated January 2, 1867, from which we extract 
the following paragraph : 

"They were not very attentively cared for, 
having been without readers for probably a cen- 
tury and more. No attempt had been made to 
translate them ; and of the history of New Am- 
sterdam and of the times in which lived and 
acted the revered fathers of our City and State, 
which has since been so fully revealed, so large 
a portion was not supposed to lie hidden in these 
dusty, unbound and forbidding volumes." 

With this letter to Mr. Dawson, Mr. Valen- 
tine encloses the following resolution passed by 
the Common Council : 

IN COMMON COUNCIL 

Resolved, That permission is hereby given to 
Henry B. Dawson, Editor of the " Historical Maga- 
zine," to make copies of and to publish in that work, 
from time to time, such portions of the ancient Rec- 
ords of this Corporation and such of its papers on file 
as, in his opinion, shall serve to illustrate the early his- 
tory of this State and City, and the character and habits 
of the inhabitants, provided the same shall be done 
under the direction and supervision of the Clerk of 



INTRODUCTION 

the Common Council ; and that the said Records shall 
not be removed from the Clerk's office. 

Adopted by the Board of Aldermen, December 6, 
1866. 

Adopted by the Board of Councilmen, December 
10, 1866. 

Adopted by his Honor the Mayor, December 13, 
1866. 

D. T. Valentine, 
Clerk of the Common Council. 

Mr. Dawson found that these records of the 
Corporation extended no further back than the 
last of May, 1647, when Peter Stuyvesant was 
Governor, but from that time on Mr. Dawson 
writes, " there is an unbroken record save only 
where a single volume of a comparatively recent 
period, has been abstracted from the archives." 

A notable instance of carelessness on the 
part of those in charge of the City's documents 
came to light in the sale in 1 864 of the books, 
prints and bric-a-brac of the venerable book- 
hunter, John Allan. The letter of General 
Washington in reply to the Address of the Cor- 
poration of the City of New York, conferring 
upon him the freedom of the city in 1785, was 
knocked down for $2,050, but the proof of 
ownership in this case was a simple matter

INTRODUCTION 

and the letter was at once reclaimed by the City. 
If so important a document as this could escape 
from the City's guardianship, what others of 
less value might not follow in its wake ? It is 
not necessary to conclude, however, that these 
things came to pass through intentional dis- 
honesty, but probably were the result of igno- 
rance, the room occupied by these yellow, musty 
papers being adjudged more desirable than their 
company. 

It was indeed fortunate that a man of anti- 
quarian tastes and imbued with civic love and 
pride enjoyed the opportunities that fell to the 
lot of Mr. Valentine under the patronage of our 
city fathers, also that he possessed the patience 
and perseverance to dig and delve among these 
dingy records of the past (or compensate some 
one to do it for him) and had the enterprise to 
print and illustrate the results of his investiga- 
tions. Valentine's " Manuals of the Corporation 
of the City of New York" are indeed a mine 
of wealth to every one who is interested in the 
history of this great city. Their editor appears 
to have unearthed nearly every painting, print, 
drawing and map of importance that bears any 
relation to our city, from the earliest settlement 
of the Island of Manhattan down to the middle 



INTRODUCTION 

of the last century. These he reproduced by 
means of lithography and chromo-lithography, 
for happily it was before the day of the half-tone 
print. 

For some unknown reason, most of these re- 
productions are without any indication of the 
sources from which they were derived. They 
usually bear merely the inscription "copied for 
D. T. Valentine's Manual by G. Hayward, 120 
Water St.," et al. So uniform is Mr. Valentine's 
practice in this respect that we are led to believe 
that it was premeditated, but this secretiveness 
on his part has only served to whet our curiosity, 
and the genesis of only a very few of the views 
he reproduced now remains a mystery. 

To the young and inexperienced collector, 
the prints in "Valentine's Manual" are invaluable 
as sign-boards, if nothing more. They point to 
prints of Old New York the existence of which 
he would never otherwise have imagined, and 
lead him onward in a search which in many 
cases will prove fruitless, but, occasionally may 
be crowned with success. 

David Thomas Valentine was born in East 
Chester, N. Y., on the 1 5th of September, 1 80 1 . 
He attended school at White Plains, and when 
about sixteen years of age came to the City of

INTRODUCTION 

New York. He obtained a position with a 
grocer in whose service he remained for several 
years prior to his appointment as Clerk to the 
Marine Court. In 1830 he became Deputy to 
the Clerk of the Common Council. His chief 
was Major General Jacob Morton, who had 
served as Clerk for twenty-one years. General 
Morton was a prominent politician and a man 
of high standing in the community. His wife was 
the daughter of Carey Ludlow, who in 1768 
purchased a parcel of land from Abraham Lym- 
sen on which he later erected a dignified dwell- 
ing, of which there is an illustration in the 
Manual for i860, and which is still standing at 
No. 9 State Street. Mrs. Morton inherited this 
dwelling from her father. In 1824 General and 
Mrs. Morton gave a ball in honor of Lafayette 
at this residence. General Morton continued 
as Clerk of the Common Council until his death 
in 1836. His successor was Thomas Bolton, 
who served until 1841. S. J. Willis then filled 
the office for a year, and again after an interval 
of one year (during which J. R. Taylor was 
Clerk) Mr. Willis occupied the position for an- 
other year. C. A. Whitney succeeded Mr. Wil- 
lis, and after twelve months' time was succeeded 
in 1 845 by the subject of our sketch.

INTRODUCTION 



In January, 1868, after a service of thirty- 
seven years as Deputy Clerk and Clerk of the 
Corporation, Mr. Valentine was superseded in 
office by Joseph Shannon and he died in this 
city the following year (February 25, 1869). 
His death was perhaps hastened, as suggested bv 
Dr. Kendrick in his funeral address, by the loss 
of the position the " old and faithful clerk " had 
held so many years. The forced or voluntary 
relinquishment at an advanced age of the pur- 
suits of a lifetime often speedily ushers in the 
final scene, and the superannuated man, without 
an occupation, is apt soon to join the great ma- 
jority. 

Mr. Valentine was buried from the Baptist 
Tabernacle Church (still standing) on Second 
Avenue, adjoining the building of the New York 
Historical Society. 

In 1 85 1, the Common Council voted an ap- 
propriation of five hundred dollars for the pur- 
chase of a portrait of Mr. Valentine in token 
of its esteem and recognition of his long and 
faithful services. It was painted by C. W. 
Jarvis, an artist of some ability.

Council (New York : G. P. Putnam & Co.,

INTRODUCTION 



1853), as tne title-page reads, was, in truth, ac- 
cording to Joseph Sabin Senior (see his " Biblio- 
theca Americana," Vol. XIV, p. 254), compiled 
by W. K. Paulding. Mr. Valentine's name is 
also attached to a "Documentary History of New 
York," only the first volume of which was ever 
published ; likewise to a " Compilation of the 
laws of the State of New York " relating particu- 
larly to the City of New York, published in 
1 862, and a " Compilation of the existing Ferry 
Leases and Railroad Grants made by the Cor- 
poration of the City of New York, etc., N. Y., 
1 866." The revision of the City Ordinances in 
1859 and 1862 were also prepared by him, by 
order of the Common Council, but the work by 
which he is most widely known is the " Manual 
of the Corporation of the City of New York " in 
twenty-five successive annual volumes, com- 
menced in 1 841 and conducted by Mr. Valen- 
tine until 1 866. 

The first Manual (184 1-2) was printed "by 
order of the Common Council" and copy- 
righted in 1 84 1 "by Samuel J. Willis, in be- 
half of the Corporation of the City of New 
York." The reason for the publication is given 
in the preface thus : " It having been thought 
expedient to enlarge the substance of the City

Hall Directory, as heretofore annually published, 
by the introduction of additional matter inter- 
esting and useful to members of the Corporation 
and others connected with them, the contents 
and form of this volume have been selected as 
most useful and convenient for reference." 

It is a small volume of 185 pages bound 
in black muslin, 4^ inches tall and 3^ inches 
wide. Its sole illustration is a folding map of 
the City in 1841. The list of contents is here 
transcribed to show the general character of the 
publication at the time of its humble beginning. 
Most of the items in this list are repeated in 
each of the subsequent volumes. The growth 
of the work is shown by the fact that in this 
volume one small page suffices for the list of 
contents, while ten pages are requisite for this 
same purpose in the volume for 1866.

It is interesting to note that this Manual re- 
cords the debt of the City as $8,978,167. The 
population in 1840 was 312,852. At the elec- 
tion for Mayor held on April 13, 1841, Mr. 
Robert H. Morris was chosen by a vote of 18,-

INTRODUCTION 

602 ; his opponent being Mr. J. Phillips Phoenix, 
who received 18,206 votes and Mr. Samuel F. 
B. Morse, who received but yy votes. How 
small a following for one who so soon was to 
bless humanity at large with his great inven- 
tion! The salary of the Mayor in this year was 
$3,000, and that of Mr. Valentine as Assistant 
Clerk $1,700. 

The second volume of the Manual ( 1 842-3) 
bears the name of D. T. Valentine on the title- 
page. It contains a lithographic view of the 
Croton Dam, a map of the City in 1842, and a 
fac-simile, on very thin paper (almost a tissue 
paper), of the Bradford Map, with the errone- 
ous date of 1728 affixed. In the volume for 
1844-5 this ma P 1S a g am reproduced on simi- 
larly thin paper, for what particular reason we 
are unable to surmise, for no other maps in the 
Manual are printed upon paper of this gossamer 
texture. 

The Preface to the Manual for 1842-3 re- 
cites that "The Manual published last year hav- 
ing been received with marked approbation 
. . . for its value as a reference to our City 
affairs ; and as the edition is entirely exhausted 
. . . it has been deemed advisable to publish 
the present work, which it will be perceived is

INTRODUCTION 

much larger than the preceding one." The 
Table of Contents contains fifty items as against 
twenty-six in the previous volume. The third 
Manual (1843-4) was printed by Wm. C. Bry- 
ant, and for it, as the preface announces "much 
new matter had been selected, never before 
published in any work of this character, which 
will not only be useful to the municipal authori- 
ties and their officers, but to every class of our 
citizens." 

Historical data, extracts from early news- 
papers, etc., appear for the first time in the vol- 
ume for 1844-5. Thenceforth these transcripts 
are prominent features of the Manual and be- 
come more and more copious as the years roll 
by; while the pictures (lithographs for the full- 
page illustrations and woodcuts in the text) 
multiply with corresponding rapidity. The sub- 
jects of these illustrations by degrees become 
more modern in character as the supply of early 
views was gradually exhausted. 

The volume for 1845-6 gives the resolution 
of the Board authorizing its issue, as follows: 
" Resolved, that the Clerk of this Board, David 
T. Valentine, be requested to prepare a Manual 
of the Corporation of the City of New York for 
the years 1845 anc ^ 1846." This resolution was 

XX 



INTRODUCTION 



approved by the Mayor, Wm. F. Havemeyer, 
January 21, 1846. 

In the preface to this Manual it is stated 
that "in the selection of materials the Compiler 
flatters himself that he has bestowed unusual 
care, and has diligently explored the civic rec- 
ords and annals of our Municipal Government 
from the earliest period, he fully believes that 
he has rescued many facts and interesting docu- 
ments from oblivion, to which they were has- 
tening down the stream of time." 

The volume for 1844-5 is taller by one inch 
than its predecessors, and in 1849 tne Manual 
was still further enlarged to a duodecimo and was 
continued in this form until the end of the series 
with which Mr. Valentine was connected. 

The preface to this volume contains the 
following note : " The reader is most respectfully 
requested to examine that portion of the work 
that relates to the doings of our ancestors in 
early times. . . . To the rising generation he 
would say, that the sayings and doings of those 
who found this Island a barren waste and laid 
here the foundations of this City ought to be of 
intense interest." 

The preface to the Manual for 1856, from 
which we are about to quote at some length,

INTRODUCTION 

should appeal strongly to the members of the 
Society of Iconophiles, for it breathes the same 
spirit that led to the formation of that Society, 
and which has held together that little band of 
lovers of old New York. 

"The Compiler of this Manual for 1856 
thinks it not improper to advert to the fact 
. . . that his efforts to perpetuate therein the 
old landmarks of our City by engravings and 
historical sketches of the olden time have ex- 
cited an approving sentiment in the public 
mind. . . . This has been anticipated by him, 
for in no other way than by establishing a well- 
known medium, through which the relics of 
the past could be presented to the public, could 
the many interesting memorials hidden among 
the family archives of the descendants of ancient 
stock, be brought into public notice. It is 
from such individual resources that many of 
the views which have never before been en- 
graved and published, have been furnished, and 
he has besides found several gentlemen who 
from love of the subject itself, have lent their 
active co-operation in searching out and present- 
ing for publication such mementos of the past 
as they were able to discover. But the subject 
is not by any means exhausted ; and, indeed, the 



INTRODUCTION 

Compiler has every reason to anticipate still 
more interesting contributions for any future 
number of the Manual that may be published 
so that it is probable that a full series of this 
work will present an epitome of our early his- 
tory, which could not, through another means, 
be reasonably expected to be presented to the 
public. Taking into consideration the interest 
with which our local history has always been 
regarded by our community and the present 
rapid progress of the City which promises soon 
to obliterate all the natural landmarks of the 
island, the Compiler thinks it not inappropriate 
to venture his approval of suggestions which 
have been made in respect to the preservation 
of views of such localities as now present no- 
ticeable features in the natural formation of the 
island, of old dwellings, farmhouses, country- 
seats, etc., as well as of the more prominent 
buildings, private and public, which denote the 
present fashions of architecture. It is provid- 
ing for future generations what we greatly 
wish had been provided for us, for there are 
many now among us who would look upon a 
crude sketch of old Burgomaster Van Cortland's 
residence, or the Damen farmhouse, or a line of 
dwellings in Broadway a century ago; or, indeed, 

xxiii 



INTRODUCTION 

any picture of localities now obliterated rather 
than upon the finest gem of modern art." 

Many of the historical and biographical ar- 
ticles in the Manuals are signed by the con- 
tributors, among them being Henry B. Dawson, 
R. G. Horton and John Gilmary Shea. The ex- 
tracts from early newspapers were supplied 
principally (the writer is informed) by William 
Kelby, late Librarian of the New York His- 
torical Society. Among the most interesting of 
these extracts are those which relate to the 
evacuation of the City of New York, pages 772- 
844 in the Manual of 1870. 

The first statement in the Manuals of the 
number of copies issued is found in the volume 
for 1864. In this year 9,000 copies were 
ordered printed. The edition for 1865 con- 
sisted of 10,000 copies, that for 1866 the same. 
The resolution authorizing the issue for 1866 
carried an appropriation of $3,500 to D. T. 
Valentine to compensate him for his labor. 
Mayor Hoffman vetoed this resolution, but it was 
passed by a two-thirds vote over his veto. At 
this time Mr. Valentine's salary was $5,000 and 
he received $150 additional for the preparation 
of the minutes of the board for publication. 

The last Manual prepared under Mr. Val- 



INTRODUCTION 

entine's supervision was the one for 1866. It 
is a volume of 836 pages, and presents a remark- 
able contrast to the little square black-cloth- 
covered booklet of 185 pages with which the 
series began. 

No Manual was issued in 1867, but one ap- 
peared the following year prepared by the newly 
appointed Clerk, Joseph Shannon. This is 
readily distinguishable from its predecessors by 
its size, for it is an octavo instead of the stere- 
otyped small octavo of all its forerunners save 
the first five volumes. 

Of this Manual 15,000 copies were issued. 
500 were assigned to the Mayor, 4,500 to the 
Clerk of the Common Council, 5,000 to the 
Board of Aldermen, and 5,000 to the Board of 
Councilmen. In his preface Mr. Shannon pays 
this tribute to his predecessor: "The enviable 
reputation secured for former editions of the 
work by the original compiler, imposed the 
duty upon his successor of endeavoring to pre- 
serve it." 

The Manual for 1869 was also issued by 
Mr. Shannon and in the preface he states that 
"he has been aided by the kind tender of ac- 
cess to a most extensive and valuable collection 
of original letters and papers of an ante-revolu-

tionary date, in possession of T. Bailey Meyers, re- 
lating to the history of the Province and the City 
of New York, and he has drawn heavily upon the 
store so generously placed at his disposal." 

In 1870 John Hardy, who had succeeded 
Shannon in the Clerkship, prepared and pub- 
lished the last of these convenient hand-books 
of the Common Council of the Corporation of 
the City of New York. Since then our City 
fathers have been obliged to discharge the duties 
of their office without this assistance. 

The first five volumes of the Manual are in 
a class by themselves, they are, and long have 
been, rare books, but the large editions of the 
succeeding volumes must have supplied every 
one connected with the city Government from 
His Honor the Mayor, down to the doorkeepers 
of the Aldermanic and Common Council Cham- 
bers with as many copies as he required for 
distribution among his friends and constituents. 
Those intended for general circulation were uni- 
formly bound in cloth, but those laid upon 
the desks of the members of the Aldermen and 
Councilmen were resplendent in red Turkey 
Morocco gilt, with the name of the recipient 
lettered in gold upon the sides. 

In consequence of this wide distribution at 



INTRODUCTION 

the City's expense, Valentine's Manual plates 
were for years a glut in the market, and so 
plentiful were they in the print-shops that extra- 
illustrators avoided them as too commonplace 
for their purpose, but gradually they became ab- 
sorbed and as the supply steadily diminished, 
they have correspondingly increased in popularity 
and enhanced in value. With a number of these 
plates, however, it has always been with the 
collector a case of Hobson's choice. It was 
either a Manual picture of the landmark of 
which he was in search or none at all. 

A trustworthy guide through the labyrinth 
of this mass of pictorial matter seemed de- 
sirable in the eyes of the Iconophiles and there- 
fore they have caused this Index to the Illustra- 
tions in the Manuals of the Corporation of the 
City of New York, prepared by the Secretary 
of their Society with great care and labor, to be 
printed for the benefit of those who wish to 
gather and preserve memorials of this ever- 
changing City of ours.
