Visual materials [series]:   

The following items are housed in the Graphics Division: The "Cahill Collection," Easterly's Niagara Views, and two c. 1810 "Cries of London" prints (gingerbread seller, woven mat seller).

The following four maps have been transferred to the Map Division:

"The wonderground map of London Town" (1914), "Map of the United States to illustrate Olney's School Geography" (c. 1840), "Ornamental map of the United States and Mexico" (1848), "Perrine's new military map illustrating the seat of war" (1862).

 
"Cahill Collection" [subseries]:

Scope note: These daguerreotypes and ambrotypes were accessioned as a set and are thought to have been the collection of (Sarah) Melinda Bailey Cahill and the Cahill family. Melinda was the sister of Margaret Bailey Townshend. The family had as their portraitist Melinda’s brother-in-law, Thomas Easterly, but only the daguerreotypes bearing the characteristic "Easterly, Artist" mats, or Easterly's handwriting on the verso, can be attributed to Easterly with absolute certainty. However, a number of the daguerreotypes of unclear provenance bear the characteristics of Easterly’s work.

  

The Cahill collection and the Niagara views are housed in the Graphics Division.
