1879 Goddard - Britton and Rey's Reduced Map of the State of California
Rare issue of Goddard's seminal map of California with updated survey work
Britton and Rey's Reduced Map of the State of California
George H. Goddard; Britton & Rey
San Francisco, c. 1879
36 x 43 cm (14 x 17 in)
Scarce and notable map of California by Goddard, from the plate of the original issue of 1858, with additions.
Based on Goddard's famous large-format map of the state, this reduced version includes new survey information, including significant updates corresponding to the Transcontinental Railroad. A rail connection between Los Angeles and Fort Yuma has also been added.
The map offers exceptional detail, including administrative (county seats, towns and ranchos) and transportation infrastructure (wagon raods, emigrant trails, railroads), along with mines and hospices.
Excellent impression; very minor discoloration in fold from original binding.
