California State 1876 Map


California State 1876 Map

We love old maps. Their coloration, typography, legends, notations, and sometimes even outdated place names all have a nostalgic quality that gives them a special beauty. If you share our love for vintage maps, you’ll appreciate this 1876 California State Map in our Historic Series. 

The California State map was originally produced on two separate pages and has been digitally combined to make a single map.  There is a noticeable difference between the top half and bottom half.

This map was made from official records of the General Land Office and other sources by C. Roeser, Principal Draughtsman G.L.O. Photolith. & Print by Julius Bien in 1876. 

    • Made in the USA

      We consider these maps to be works of art, so we print and frame them accordingly. We offer two choices of print surfaces: fine-art archival paper and stretched canvas. Fine art paper prints do not come framed unless you add a frame to your order.

      Every map is custom printed. We have no inventory. Only when we receive your order do we produce your print on our 12-color giclée printer, using top-quality archival inks that will never fade.

      Fine Art Paper-Our archival paper is museum-quality, 100% cotton, acid-free, and certified to last 100 years. This assures sharp details, true colors, and exceptional durability. 

      Frame- Our thin hardwood frames are handmade from real Maple or Walnut, not pressed wood with veneer. Prints will come mounted behind a clear acrylic, with mounting hardware attached to it. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your frame to arrive.

      Canvas Gallery Wrap-If you prefer a frameless look, order your map on stretched canvas, which offers a bit more depth and texture. We use archival canvas, gallery-wrapped and varnished, stretched onto a 1.5-inch-thick wood frame.

      AZ Map to Learn From

      I’ve really enjoyed the historic map of Arizona I purchased from Muir Way. The product is of great quality and interest. I would recommend their products to anyone looking for a unique item for themselves, relatives, friends or colleagues.

      Very nice

      The Montana map arrived and it is beautiful. Great detail and the frame is very nice as well. We couldn’t wait to get it on the wall.


      Colorado Territory 1876 Map

      Beautiful map! The colors and details of the map are nicely rendered, and it looks terrific in the Reclaimed Wood Frame. Tons of compliments. Phenomenal customer service: e-mails kept me informed of order status throughout the process, and delivery was on-time & impeccably packaged. Muir Way is one of those rare online stores that combines an always-interesting product selection with personalized service.

      High Quality Reproduction

      The Montana Territory 1876 Map is of the highest quality. It is clearly printed on durable paper and has the look of a map produced nearly a century and a half ago. It will be framed and hung in a prominent place in our Montana cabin.
