Impressive and scarce engraved large map of California
Item Details
Description
Extremely scarce double-page vertical map of California. Fully hand colored in pastels with fine level of detail throughout. Shows railroads, wells, springs, towns, rivers, lakes, topography, deserts, swamps, islands and other coastal features. A map that does not show up in many collections because of its scarcity. Insets of the area surrounding San Francisco and the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii). From the very scarce 1894 Potter-Bradley atlas, the last atlas published that featured hand coloring on the maps. Maps from this atlas are extremely difficult to find. William Bradley published Mitchell’s Universal Atlas from 1880 to 1887—his alliance with John E. Potter for this atlas appears to be a one-time event. A beautiful example with lovely coloring and on excellently preserved paper. Good sized margins. An absolute beauty. 16.375 x 22.25
