  • Map of the Great Salt Lake And Adjacent Country in the Territory Of Utah Surveyed in 1849 and 1850, under the orders of Col. J.J. Abert, Chief of the Topographical Bureau, by Capt. Howard Stansbury of the Corps of Topographical Engineers, aided by Lieut. J. W. Gunnison...

    This is Stansbury's famous and excellent map. It includes the entire valley of the Great Salt Lake and Utah Lake in great detail naming each mountain steam and related feature, notably many using native Indian names. Much of the Mormon settlement was still in the valley at this time and each of the towns and cities is shown with the connecting roads and trails. No finer map of the area had been drawn before and this was the standard map for many years afterward.

    Condition is very good, with a few corner fold repairs to the back, but no instances of loss. Image size is 43 x 30 (inches)
