Nice example of this early edition of Faust's map of San Francisco, one of the most striking maps of the period, surrounded by promotional information for local merchants, etc.
Faust's map provides a highly detailed look at San Francisco at the end of the 19th Century, on the eve of San Francisco's great earthquake of 1906. This map has an inset showing a broader view of the Bay area, and a legend that explains some of the features of the map, such as ward boundaries and street car routes.
Henry W. Faust issued at least 17 editions of his map of San Francisco both in pocket form (accompanied by a street directory, city guide, or both, or neither) and as wall maps. All editions of this map are uncommon and sought after.
Printed by Galloway Litho. Co. of San Francisco.
