Decorative map of the route of the Central Pacific from the midwest to San Francisco, illustrated with 24 images of the west, primarily of California and Nevada.
Includes an excellent smaller map entitled "Map of the Rail & State Route to Big Tree Groves and Yosemite" on the verso.
The California mail bag was published by Frank Marriott from 1871 to 1878. The pamphlet is extremely rare. Americana Exchange shows no examples at auction or in dealer catalogues since 1963. AMPR notes 2 copies of 1875 edition of the map appeared in dealer catalogues in the late 1980s, but none more recently.
This is the first time we have ever seen the map or the pamphlet offered for sale.
