W. Coast of U. S. - Frisco to San Diego. 1852

Lot 0043 Details

Description
  • Title: W. Coast of U. S. - Frisco to San Diego. 1852
  • Description: "Nicest example of this map I’ve seen in twenty years. Perhaps the most attractive and desirable of the original U.S. Coast Survey charts of the California Coast, with 17 painstakingly hand-colored vignettes. Shows the coast from San Diego and the Mexican border north as far north as Pt. Reyes and the San Francisco Bay. Details San Diego Bay, 'El Peublo de Los Angeles' and the Los Angeles Valley, the Mission of San Fernando and the San Fernando Valley, and the San Francisco Bay area including San Francisco itself, Oakland, San Jose, Union City and Alviso. By far this map's most dramatic quality is the inclusion of seventeen stunning coastal views including 'View of the Entrance to San Francisco Bay,' 'View Pt. Piedras,' 'View Pt. Ano Nuevo,' 'View of Pt. Pinos,' 'View of Pt. Sur,' 'View of Piedras Blancas,' 'View of Moro Rock,' 'Esteros Bay,' 'View of Pt. Sal,' ' View Pt. Arguila,' 'View Pt. Concepcion bearing W. by S.,' 'View of Pt. Concepcion bearing S.E. by E.,' 'View Pt. Duma,' 'View of the Town and Mission of Santa Barbara,' 'View of San Pedro, Pt. Fermin,' 'View showing initial point of boundary between the United States and Mexico,' 'View of Catalina Harbor,' and a 'View Pt. Loma.' Also offers numerous depth soundings along the coastline and between major islands and undersea dangers. Copious notes and sailing instructions in the upper right-hand quadrant of the map are an interesting read for the nautically inclined. Most mid-19th century Coastal Survey maps are browned at the folds. This example has almost none. The vignettes in this map have been carefully colored by a design professional so each is like a small painting, with subtle shading and choice of coloring that adds real depth to each composition. (Most examples of this map are not colored with this much care). Accompanying photo shows what it looked like before coloring. One repaired peanut-size chip at upper left margin where it had originally been bound into book. Few small edge tears (at folds) repaired using Japanese mulberry paper that lasts a thousand years and is reversible. Four small pieces of archival tape on reverse at fold junctions. 22.25 x 22.75"
