A terrific city plan that has fine detail of buildings, streets and roads, terrain through contour lines, etc. Covers the region from North Point to Mission de Delores and to Point San Quentin. Streets are clearly laid out and named with detail down to individual buildings. Extant buildings are shown in black along the streets in both San Francisco and Mission de Dolores, which are connected by Plank Road. Numbers keyed to an inset indicate sixteen public buildings and fifteen reservoirs. Good example of this early plan of the city.


Condition: A

Very nice example with a fine impression. Issued folding, now pressed and backed with archival tissue. Hint of toning along one fold, still very good.
