Scare map of the Central Valleys and Gold Regions of California, extending from Lassen's Peak, Redding and Honey Lake to Bakersfield, Buenavista Lake and Kern Lake. Lake Tahoe is shown, as are massive Mono and Tulare Lakes, the latter of which already appears to be shrinking. A remarkable topographical map, one of the most remarkable of the period. Includes a table with interesting details on the rivers and counties of California. Many towns appear on the map which were later abandoned, the results of the declining mining interests in the state. A decorative and important California map.
