“COUNTY MAP OF CALIFORNIA” Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell Jr.,from the 1866 eddition of Mitchell's New General Atlas, copyright dated 1860 in lower margin. Engraved map with original hand-coloring.(Image: 13 ¼ x 10 ½’’).
This detailed historical map depicts California with its counties in contrasting colors. Counties have been updated from the earlier editions of this map. Topographical features are shown (and described) with major towns, cities, water routes, mountain passes 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 immediately after the American Civil War.
