“COUNTY MAP OF CALIFORNIA” Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell Jr - from the 1863 edition of Mitchell’s New General Atlas (dated 1860 in lower margin but published in the 1863 Atlas). Engraved map with bright original hand-coloring.(Image: 13 ¼ x 10 ½’’)
This detailed historical map depicts California with its counties in contrasting colors. Topographical features are shown (and described) with major towns, cities, water routes, mountain passes, Missions, and “wagon roads” identified.
The insets depict “San Francisco Bay and Vicinity” and a “Map of the Settlements in the Great Salt Lake Country, Utah”. A fascinating view of the area as it existed during the Civil War Era.
