This map by Harry Wilson was issued as a companion to the 64 page Wilson’s Guide to Avalon and Catalina. Geared toward the outdoorsman, the map identifies a large "Hunting Preserve" with fox, quail and goats located within the boundaries. Along the coastline, numerous fish species are noted including yellow fin tuna, sea bass, halibut, and yellowtail. The map features a large inset of Avalon with a key locating 52 different points of interest. Folds into green paper wrappers (4.2 x 7.4"). No auction records or dealer listings in the last 30 years, and OCLC shows only two institutional holdings.
