California and Nevada [on verso] Oregon and Washington [and] San Francisco
F. A. Gray
Philadelphia, c. 1879
41.4 x 66.3 (16.3 x 26.1 in)
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.
Light toning, faint offsetting, and a fold separation that enters 2" into the image at left that has been closed on verso with archival tape.
