The first set of pictures show three "Clason" California State maps, the first is by Ventura Refining Company and the last two by California Petroleum Company.  California Petroleum Company purchased Ventura Refining and kept Ventura Motor Oil, but changed the gasoline brand to CALPET.   Texaco bought Calpet in 1928 and then issued their own maps.  I believe these maps are 1926, 1927 and 1928 maps of California.

The second set of pictures are the "Tips for Trips", there are two different publishers, one is in book form with staples, published by "Calpet Press" and the other is a folding sheet that opens up published by  "Young & McCallister, Inc., L. A".  Both are 16 pages featuring day trip rout maps in California

The third set of pictures show the 1927 "Touring Scout" Map, featuring strip maps of the Pacific Coast.  The format of Texaco's first California map in 1928 is similar to the 1927 Calpet map, it can be seen at Texaco-CA.

 Also, in the third set are two little "Romances of the Mission Bells"  maps of the routs connecting the California Missions.  One featuring Ventura Refining Gasoline Ads and the other, being a later edition, with Calpet Gasoline Ads.
