SAN FRANCISCO VIEW1880.
GODDARD, GEORGE HENRY. 1817-1906. Bird's Eye View of San Francisco and Surrounding Country. San Francisco: Britton Rey & Co. for Snow & May, 1880.
Lithographed view on paper, 815 x 1209 mm., early and later coloring, creases from fold marks, some brief toning, but generally excellent, framed.
Goddard was a government surveyor who completed many sketches and paintings of the country, later having one of the highest peaks in the Sierras named for him. Of his published views, this example is certainly one his most impressive for both its detail and great size. Peters California on Stone p.124.
