This is a beautifully colored and engraved double-page map showing numerous named railroads, cities and towns, watershed, forts, and more. Three large insets: Plan of Sacramento; The Vicinity of San Francisco; and Map of the Yosemite Valley. Early railroads extend from Los Angeles north to Redding and east to San Bernardino; the Central Pacific crosses Nevada to Sacramento; several spurs radiate from the San Francisco Bay area. County development is accurate to 1874 except the border between San Bernardino and Inyo counties is incorrectly shown pre-1872. On verso are two full-page maps: a fine street plan of San Francisco, and Oregon and Washington. A large and handsomely colored map of California.
Fine impression and original color with full margins. Centerfold shows signs of split with archival paper tape on verso.
