    This map is somewhat difficult to read, but very interesting to those of us in California. I bought this off Ebay a couple years ago. Has anyone ever seen this before? I'd love to find out more info on it or even share it w/ native people who might be interested.

      Awesome find! I'm a Californian and would love to see this map up close. Reminds me of something found in the Southwest Museum in LA, which was founded by a man named Charles Loomis, who was somewhat an expert on California Indian culture 100 years or so ago.

      This is so interesting! I love old maps and have a few. It's interesting to see how lands and lines grow and change. Thanks so much for posting this.
