This collection of charts covers the Pacific coastline from the Mexican border to the Canadian Border.  The charts are very large, the three of them cover that entire coastline, and they date mostly from the mid 1800s.
See also the Big Area post 1917 and 200,000 Scale ca.1890 collections.

This collection will soon be available!

These Nautical charts are extremely detailed, showing not only ports and harbors but lighthouses, bouys and depth soundings as well as islands, shoals, and other dangers to mariners.  The image to the right is a high-res clip from the 1854 chart displayed above it, click to enlarge.
