Rare separately issued map of the central part of Los Angeles, one of the earliest obtainable maps of the heart of the City.
The map was issued as a promotional item for Stoll & Thayer, who were the among the earliest booksellers, stationers and map printers working in Los Angeles. The map includes a detailed table of references (showing the names of public and private buildings, parks, etc.), along with a table showing Rail lines, Sprinkling Hydrants,Graded Streets, Sewer lines and other important details.
One of the earliest obtainable maps of Los Angeles and one of the rarest. OCLC locates only 2 examples (Huntington Library and Bancroft Library). The map was apparently re-issued in 1886 as Stoll & Thayer's Reference Street Map of the City of Los Angeles, for which there is only one example located by OCLC (Library of Congress).
