Full Title Britton & Rey's Map Of The State Of California. Compiled from the U.S. Land & Coast Surveys, the several Military, Scientific & Rail Road Explorations, the State & County Boundary Surveys made under the Order of the Surveyor General of California, & from Private Surveys. By George H. Goddard, C.E. Completed with Additions & Corrections up to the day of publication from the U.S. Land Office & other reliable sources. Lithy. Of Britton & Rey, Montgomery St. Cor. Commercial, S.F. Entered ... 1857 by Britton & Rey ... California. Engraved by H. Steinegger.
Note 1st edition. Wheat: "This map, a beautiful example of the cartographer's art, is unfortunately rare and little-known...it was by far the most accurate and complete map of California and of its gold regions which had as yet been published." This copy was issued as a wall map, but it has been nicely restored, varnish removed, rebacked on paper without the rollers. The other examples I am aware of were all pocket maps. See Shumate essay on Goddard. A second edition, reduced in size, was published in 1858, and a third edition was published in 1860 (see WH copies). Map is unvarnished and without rollers. Outline color by county with a full color wash.

Accompanied by a Map of California and adjacent Country.
Note Wheat calls this "rare but otherwise unimportant," due to some misspellings and inaccuracies in the map. Streeter sale illustrates the map and the price realized was the same as the Eddy map of 1853. I find the Wheat inaccuracies minor, with most of them being misspellings. The overall map is impressive. It would be interesting to find the map or maps that were used as sources. Ouline color by state. Folded into dark brown cloth covers 16.5x11 with "Map Of California And Adjacent Country By F. Goodwin" stamped in gilt.

Full Title Topographical Map of Central California Together With a Part of Nevada. (Sheets III & IV). State Geological Survey Of California. J.D. Whitney, State Geologist. C.F. Hoffmann, Principal Topographer, V. Wackenreuder, J.T. Gardner, A. Craven, A.D. Wilson, Field Assistants. 1873 ... Julius Bien, Engr.
Note South 2 sheets of 4, top 2 sheets never issued, thus complete. Two unmounted sheets on heavy paper. Never folded. Hoffmann was the principal topographer. Wheat says the Northwest sheet was issued, does not mention the northeast being issued. WH says the two northern sheets were issued with areas left unsurveyed, he doubts that they were ever mounted on linen and colored. So the bottom two in this issue can be considered "complete". Vogdes lists the date as 1872 (and elsewhere as 1873!). We think 1873 is correct. Vogdes says sheet II, northeast sheet, was issued in 1872, he also dates sheet III and IV as 1872, and sheet III as having an 1871 issue (Fitch had a copy of this 1871 sheet III issue on thin paper, folded into covers, Cat. 41). There is a note on the map reading "The portion of Nevada included between the parallels ... taken from the work of the 40th Parallel Survey in charge of Clarence King, by permission of Genl. A.A. Humphreys, Chief of Engineers." Outline color by county.
