Description

Very good example of Faust's map of the City of San Francisco. Not to be confused with his similar, but more common, map of the City and County of San Francisco, which extended to the Pacific in the west, and shows slightly less detail.

The map illustrates the wharves and docks and names them, it also shows perspective infill into San Francisco Bay. It also illustrates the original waterfront line of the city.

Faust's map provides a highly detailed look at San Francisco in the late 19th century as it developed into one of the greatest metropolises in American West. This map has an inset showing a broader view of the City & County of San Francisco (referencing Faust's other popular map.)

Henry W. Faust issued his maps in many editions -- helping to chart the late-19th- and early-20th-century development of San Francisco. He issued maps both in pocket form (accompanied by a street directory, city guide, or both, or neither) and as wall maps. All editions of this map are uncommon and sought after.
