New Map Book By Jim Schein

"Gold Mountain, Big City"

To Be Released at the end of March!

Pre-Sales Available Now!

Greetings All, 

Having personally received a sample hardcopy of my upcoming book, Gold Mountain, Big City, complete with folding map and forward by my friend Gordon Chin,  I am confident the projected March 24th release date is accurate. The culmination of several years of work explained within it, the book is lavish visually, comprehensive in research and fun, too.  A must have for any San Francisco book collector, historian, map lover or explorer, I’d be remiss to not mention, it is also a great way to show your support and love for Schein and Schein . 


If you’re thinking of buying one,… buy three.” - Jim Schein
