DETAILS

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.
