California, State Geological Survey

[San Francisco?]




Lithographed map, on 4 sheets. Each sheet approx. 57x43 cm (22½x17") plus margins.

Scarce lithographed map of the San Francisco Bay Area, the lithography by Julius Bien. The map extends north to south from Gilroy to a little north of Napa and west to east from a little west of Bolinas to Mt. Hamilton. The map was first published in 1867, and  revised in 1868, before this present issue. Formerly in the University of California Berkeley, with stamps and markings in margins. It appears the map was originally printed in two sheets, north and south, which have been split vertically into four sheets, and a little rough where split.

Lot Amendments

A few marginal chips and short tears intruding into image; overall very good, worthy of some restoration.
