This large and remarkably detailed map delineates the progress of public surveys throughout the state of California. Several map sections have a grid overlay, to indicate surveyed lots. Roman numerals on the map correspond to sections of the accompanying official written report of the Surveyor General. About one-third of the state, in the north and east, remains unsurveyed. The map is presented on the scale of 18 miles per inch.
At lower left, the map is signed in the plate by John C. Hays, U.S. Surveyor General of California. This map was published on September 30, 1855.
This is a Great Republic exclusive presentation of the 1855 public surveys map of California. The frame is made from re-purposed 19th century window framing taken from a razed building in Chicago. And the glass has been hand-painted on the surface with the map's title, date and major cities.
An exceptional piece of history displayed in a completely unique style.
Framed dimensions: 40 1/4" H x 35 3/4" W x 2 1/4" D
