A scarce and interesting map of the "waterways" of California from the vicinity of Bakersfield to Lassen's Peak. Rivers, waterways, finished canals, etc are shown in great detail. Includes Lake Tahoe, Mono, Honey and Tulare Lakes. The mountainous area of the Sierra Nevadas is made very clear by the brown hatching on a beige background. Details include railroads, canals, and floodplains.
Issued folded and now back with Japanese tissue with a little toning along two folds, still very good for a map of this size.
