Portfolio atlas of unbound sheets in original light green paper wraps (dated 1878) containing title page with sepia tinted illustration, legend sheet, two different sheets showing conventional signs, 2 general maps (drainage and general topographic features), Lake Bonneville map, and 48 different tinted topographic and colored land classification atlas maps, including 1 geological map. Incomplete, as Wheeler chose to publish his topographical atlas piecemeal over the period of about a decade as individual map sheets were completed, but a substantial collection nevertheless of the most difficult to find of the Four Great Survey atlases. This collection includes a wide selection of flat (never folded) and folding versions of hachure, shaded relief and contour relief maps from across the American southwest (about 2/3 flat and 1/3 folded). Rarely offered in such a large grouping. *** Condition: Wraps, title page, preliminary sheets and general maps with some edge tears and chipping; substantial to one of the conventional signs sheets and a general map. Small scribble on front wrap. Map sheets generally good to very good with edge roughness and tears to some; also minor soiling and marginal staining to some. Lake Bonneville sheet toned with heavier staining and soiling. A complete listing of map sheets can be provided upon request. See Schmeckebier ("Catalogue and Index of the Publications of the Hayden, King, Powel, and Wheeler Surveys"), pages 60-62 and 64-65 for reference to Wheeler's regular published atlas maps.
