The First Large Format Map of Central Napa County

Fine Map of Central Napa Valley, centered on St. Helena, published by E.W. Woodward & Co. in St. Helena.

This is the earliest map to focus on the central part of the County and the regions being developed and cultivated for winemaking grapes.

The map includes a large town plan of St. Helena and a smaller plan of La Jota Rancho or Howell Mountain. 

Finely detailed map of a portion of Napa Valley, extending from Yountville in the southeast to Bale Station in the northwest, following the line of the County Road from Napa to Calistoga diagonally across the map. 

The map identifies a number of Wine Cellars, reflecting the main buildings of some of California's earliest winemakers, including:

  • Rutherford
  • Beringer
  • Charles Krug
  • Laurent
  • Weinberger
  • Beretta
  • John Thomna
  • York
  • Lyman
  • Fulton
  • Scheffler, etc.


The map is very rare. OCLC locates 2 examples. Bancroft Library and UC Davis.


Our Perfect Recreations are Archival Pigment Prints that are printed on Innova Etching Fine Art Cotton Rag Paper using Archival Watercolor Pigment Inks.

Viewed side by side - with the naked eye or under magnification - our Perfect Recreations™ are indistinguishable from the originals. The closer you get, the better they look. They completely and convincingly re-create the experience of seeing the originals.

Each Perfect Recreation™ has it all: every incredibly fine line detail of every Antique Map; every delicate watercolor brushstroke of every Audubon and every Botanical; even the subtle signs of char-acter and patina the paper shows after as much as 500 years.
Our prints are not posters; they are not reproductions -- they are Perfect Recreations as jaw-drop-ping beautiful as the originals. They are identical to the originals, and your response to them will be identical to your appreciation for the great original artworks.

We have pioneered proprietary techniques and technologies to capture and print at the highest resolution ever achieved -- our works typically provide more than ten times the detail of any previous fine art reproduction. We perfectly recreate color and texture nuances - even the sense of luminosity. We mix and apply archival watercolor pigments to the highest quality archival papers to deliver legacy-quality Perfect Recreations™.
