Nice pair of maps representing Williamson's final two maps in this series. Former is 30" x 22", latter is 34" x 22.5". Both maps have fine hachure to indicate mountainous elevations, good detail of the line of survey, and have a large profile along the bottom. The first shows what is today known as Tejon Pass. The second map details the named Tejon Pass, but this is a pass that is not traversed by any road today. Nice pair of maps of the same region.

References: Wheat (TMW) #879 & #880.

Condition: B

Both maps now backed with tissue, toned along folds.

Estimate: $120 - $140

Sold for: $60
