S. W. Higgins Draftsman. Printed by C.B. Graham. A scarce and seldom offered street map of San Francisco. Appears to be pre-landfill, with some planned tracts drawn in the bay. Terrific detail with individual tracts numbered and many streets named. Gives the location of the Yerba Buena Cemetery, a Government Reserve, two Public Squares and Fort Montgomery, but no buildings are shown. A coloring legend, at lower left, keys to the map and locates a grant to Senora Breouers, Claims of the heirs of Col. J. A. King and a claim of Senor Pana under a Mexican Grant. Attributed by Howes 248 to "A report … Land Titles in California" by William C. Jones. Howes notes that not all copies had this map.
