Broadside
Authors Ensigns & Thayer
Full Title Map of the Gold Regions of California, Showing the Routes via Chagres and Panama, Cape Horn, &c.
Note This is the thin paper copy with smaller ornamental border and no publisher credit. Wheat believes it was folded into some copies of Farnham's "Life, Adventures, and Travels in California;" our copies of that book have the Haven map pasted in one (see our #3963) and this map pasted in the other (see our #5001). This copy shows signs of being folded. It was probably sold with the book and separately. The text is the same as the broadside issue but the title is in different type. Scarce.
