"Exploration And Survey Of The Great Salt Lake Of Utah"
By Howard Stansbury. Printed By Order Of The Senate Of The United States. Philadelphia: Lippincott, Grambo & Co., 1852. First Edition. Separate volume of two maps is not present. This work contains 57 plates and a small map by John Senex (34 plates are tinted topographic lithographic lithographs, three of which are folded panoramas and 23 natural history plates). Stansbury led a detachment of Army Topographical Engineers in 1849 and reported on their expedition to the Great Salt Lake Basin. He mapped routes and passes through the Rockies for travelers and possibly a railroad. Bound in original embossed publisher's cloth with a gilt eagle and lettering on the spine. Corners and spine ends are bumped. There is a 1 3/4" tear along the top of the front hinge, but the covers remain quite secure. Internally foxed and toned throughout. 487 pages; 9 1/8" tall.
