Item:233528333360Original 1915 soil survey report with attached map "Soil Survey of the Pasadena 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.Every single one of these I've ever seen has a small tear in the area where the map attaches to the book EXCEPT THIS ONE.This Survey Map is PRISTINE and LIKE NEW. The report appears unopened/unused. There is no discoloration that is so common with these. And the map where it attaches to the book is NOT RIPPED, this is the first one I've ever seen in this great condition.. 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 like new condition, binding tight, all pages present, no torn pages. Back cover has a small dog ear. Book includes 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 Pasadena and Los Angeles in 1915. 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, signature required. Just a note, there's a 1916 soil survey from Ohio on Etsy for sale that's in worse condition, and it's $1030! (that's crazy).Condition:Unread/Unused Mint Pristine Like new, Maker:DEPT AGR, Original/Reproduction:Antique Original, Type:Map, Year:1915, US State:California, City:Los Angeles
