Description

Presentation Copy! -- One of the Earliest Maps of San Francisco published in the City.

Finely detailed map of the populated areas of San Francisco, oriented to the west. The map extends west to Divisadero; south to Alta.

The present example is overprinted, to show distances at quarter mile intervals from Portsmouth Square and also includes numbered and lettered lots.

One interesting feature is the tracing of the original shoreline of San Francisco, showing just how much of the city is built on landfill.

The present example is accompanied by a presentation copy of the San Francisco Municipal Reports for the Fiscal Year 1861-62, given to E.C. Kennedy.

Rarity

The map is quite rare on the market.
