The handsome map locates essential features such as physiography, hydrology, roads, towns, etc., but also individual rural houses, mills, blacksmiths, churches, schools and more. An inset in the lower left corner of the map illustrates the Sonoma Daily and Weekly Democrat building. A well preserved and complete copy of this hard to find history. *** Condition: A few old creases and fly specks to front wrap, spine slightly perished at top. Small chip to top corner of last page and rear wrap. Text and map are clean and unmarked. Custom box has some slight wear to corners and a few spots along the fore edge else very good.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Historical and Descriptive Sketch of Sonoma County, California Sonoma county lies twenty-five miles north of San Francisco a little west of a due north line. It is bounded on the south by the bay of San Francisco and Marin county, the latter county a peninsula lying between the bay and the ocean; on the west by the Pacific ocean; on the north by Mendo ino county, and on the east by Lake and Napa counties. Its sea-coast front, following the sinuosities of the shore line, is about sixty miles. Its average length, from north to south, is about fifty miles, and its average width is about twenty-five miles. Its area is, in round numbers, eight hundred and fifty thousand acres. The district of Sonoma originally included all the vast territory lying between the Sacramento river and the Pacific ocean. At the first session of the legislature the northern line was fixed along the fortieth parallel of latude to the summit of the Mayacmas range of mountains, and thence south to the bay, including all the present county of Mendocino, and a portion of Napa county In 1850, Napa county having been previously formed, the limits of Sonoma were contracted to the present boundary lines by the segregation of Men ino county. A glance at the map of the State herewith published, will show the great advantages of the location of the county of Sonoma. It fronts on the bay of San Francisco, known in its northern extremity as the bay of San Pablo, once called the bay of Sonoma. Two estuaries lead from the bay inland into the county of Sonoma, navigable at high tide for steamers and sail-vessels of considerable size. The latter, with a fair wind and tide, convey the produce of the county, at the current freight-rates, in a few hours to the wharves in San Francisco. In addition, there are a number of shipping points along the coast, of which more will be said hereafter. Sonoma county is not so fully known as portions of this State with less advantages of climate, soil, and productions; because it is off the grea central line of travel, which follows the Sacramento Valley to tide-water, thence to San Francisco, and turns southward. It has been hidden, as it were, behind the Coast Range of mountains, which separates it from the great Sacramento Valley From San Francisco, through the Sacramento Valley, you pass along the east foothills of the Coast Range; from the same place to Sonoma county you pass along the west face of the same range. The trend of the coast is northwesterly, and the county of Sonoma lies almost entirely west of the city of San Francisco. Lying west of the greater part of the State may account for the fact that about one-third more rain falls here than in San Francisco, and fully one-half more than in the counties south and east of the bay of San Francisco. There has never been a season in the history of the county when there was not enough rain to make a crop. There have been years of drouth in other parts of the State; but in this section in those seasons the crops were better than an average.
