About this Item

Eleven large folding color and black and white maps in original brown cloth portfolio covers with gilt front cover title. Published as the atlas volume to Hayden's two volume Twelfth Annual Report (report volumes not present), the maps cover all of northwestern and part of central Wyoming, including adjoining parts of Utah and Idaho. This atlas shares some similarities with Hayden's famous atlas of Colorado suggesting that he would have produced a similar atlas for Wyoming and Yellowstone had his survey not been terminated to form the U. S. Geological Survey in 1879. The atlas contains the following 11 maps (the 7 maps listed inside the front cover are identified as pocket maps in the text volumes; the final 4 maps are unlisted in either the text or atlas): 1) Economic Map of Portions of Wyoming, Idaho, and Utah, 2) Geologic Map of Portions of Wyoming, Idaho, and Utah, 3) Geologic Map of Part of Central Wyoming, 4) Geologic Map of Parts of Western Wyoming and Southeastern Idaho, 5) Geologic Map of Western Wyoming, Southeastern Idaho, and Northeastern Utah, 6) Geologic Map of Yellowstone National Park (the first geologic map of Yellowstone NP), 7) Panoramic Views in the Wind River and Teton Mountains, 8) Part of Central Wyoming (unlisted topographic map), 9) Parts of Western Wyoming and Southeastern Idaho (unlisted topographic map), 10) Parts of Western Wyoming, Southeastern Idaho, and Northeastern Utah (unlisted topographic map), and 11) General Geologic Map of the Area Explored and Mapped by Dr. F. V. Hayden. According to Jules Marcou, Hayden's general geologic map was issued in 1884 following the publication of the atlas and is rarely present in the portfolio. It covers all of Colorado and most of Wyoming and Montana with portions of adjoining territories, plus the western portion of Nebraska and the Dakotas - the sum total of Hayden's 30 years' geological mapping work in the west. *** Condition: Covers with a little light scuffing but otherwise clean; sting ties lacking. No ownership markings. Maps are in very good condition but are prone to splitting as typical for this issue. A very scarce issue with the rare 11th map. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
