The section maps show not only property lines, but ownership as well. The atlas covers both Tulare and Kings Counties in California. Kings County had not yet separated from Tulare County (1896). This book is reproduced full size (14.5" x 15") with four 4-color maps. It is hardbound in a rich faux leather binding. It has over 260 pages of remarkable historical illustrations and maps. The original edition is exceptionally rare, as is a reprint from 1972. The Thompson Historical Atlas of Tulare County should be in every real estate and title office in both counties, as well as in research libraries across the United States.
