An interesting map of the "waterways" of California from the vicinity of Bakersfield to Lassen's Peak. The mountainous area of the Sierra Nevada is clearly shown through brown hachuring on a beige background. Details include railroads, canals, and floodplains.
Issued folded and now backed with Japanese tissue and ready for framing. A little toning at folds, still very good.
