If the map is correctly filed, then this birdseye of Fresno [gmap], California was Klein's only work in this idiom; which is a shame, if true. This map is well made.

Done in Britton & Rey's well-trod but handsome ring-of-buildings-'round-the-collar format. It should be noted that many birdseye map companies employed this – I suspect as a way for the city to farm-out financing for the venture – but that perhaps none did it with as much craft as Britton & Rey.
