Seller: corppor (1,001) 100%, Location: Redmond, Oregon, Ships to: US, Item: 233528402242 Original 1919 soil survey report with attached map "Soil Survey of the Los Angeles Area, California."This map was so well made and so accurate for it's day that it's still in use by the County of Los Angeles even though more modern maps exist. These maps were attached to the soil survey book at the lower left hand corner of the map, please see photos.Map is detached from book which is normal if you're actually using the document, although this one appears unused, usually you'd write your name on the front so in the office the other soilies knew it was your copy, etc. A map of this age is rare to find in this condition.Map does not appear to have faded at all. Color is bright. Soil survey book is in very good condition, binding tight, all pages present, no torn pages EXCEPT as shown in the photo.Book includes many photos of the land and land uses in the early 1900's. Detailed descriptions of the agriculture of the day are included. It's an amazing thing to see the roads and extent of Los Angeles in 1919. Map size is roughly 32" by 38", it was hard to measure accurately as it's difficult to lay flat. I was afraid of damaging it. Book and map will be carefully packaged, insured with tracking. Just a note, there's a 1916 soil survey from Ohio on Etsy for sale that's in worse condition, and it's $1030! Maker: DEPT AGR, Original/Reproduction: Antique Original, Type: Map, Year: 1919, US State: California, City: Los Angeles
