Item Description: A. O. P. Nicholson, Washington, 1857. Hardcover. Volume VII only Large quarto. black leather spine with green gilt lettered spine label, over marbled boards. Illustrated with than 8 plates (one plate with torn upper margin, others fine) of scenery, 12 paleontology plates, 14 plates of geology, 2 coloured maps (folding): Geological Plan .San Francisco to Los Angeles and Geologic Plan.Rio Grande to Pimas Villages, and 8 botanical plates. House of Representatives, 33rd Congress, 2nd Session, Executive Document 91.Jefferson Davis was Secretary of War at the time of the Survey expedition. A large number of issues surrounding the whole project existed still when he finally got appropriation to fund the project with the assistance of Senator Gwin, California. Some of the questions were: Where to build it? Where to begin and where to end? Which states to go through? As can be readily imagined the political and regional pressures were enormous. Finally, four routes were selected to be explored. The one most favoured by Jefferson Davis himself was the fourth route from Texas along the Gila River to San Diego; another supported by Senator Thomas Hart Benton followed the Kansas River to Arkansas to Salt Lake along the 37-39th parallels. Yet another proposed "middle route" ran from Arkansas through across New Mexico and Arizona and finally crossed the Mojave Desert in California. The northernmost route proposed came along the Missouri River across the Northern Rocky Mountains to Puget Sound, staying along the 47-49th parallels. In addition, of course, there were surveys on the west coast suggesting routes to link San Diego, San Francisco and the Pacific Northwest.When the reports were complete they encompassed much more than just a railroad survey, they also included natural history, topography and geology of the territories surveyed, and were amply illustrated with plates and maps. John M. Stanly was the most prominent of the eleven illustrators accompanying the expedition and he illustrated more plates than any of the others. The plates show scenery, native inhabitants, flora, fauna, archaeological interests, as well as numerous maps. There are also many plates of birds of all kinds. The reconnoisances made possible the first reasonably accurate topographical map of the West.Published by the Federal Government, these reports provide the single most important contemporary source of knowledge for the geography of the West. The set is a corner stone work in a Western Americana collection and is considered one of the most important works on the Transmississippi West for its published reports on the explorations and the data collected during the surveys. [Wagner-Camp The Plains and the Rockies, p. 262]. Covers somewhat rubbed, front joint weak, interior clean. Bookseller Inventory # 26006

Item Description: War Department (U.S.A.), Publ., Washington, D. C., Pl., 1855. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. First Edition. PACIFIC RAILROAD REPORTS Quarto Edition Volume II (Ref. Wagner & Camp 4th ed. 262a, page 471). Half-leather over marbled boards, consists of seven reports, each paginated separately, about 608pp total including original endpapers & blank pages, plus 4 plates of b/w illustrations of fossils, 20 plates of botanical b/w illustrations and 2 fold-out maps in color "From the Red River to the Rio Grande;" the southern route favored by Sec. of War Jefferson Davis . There are TWO ANOMALIES between the W & C ref. and our copy: "33rd Congress 2d Session #91" -- ours states 3rd Session; "Beverly Tucker, printer" -- ours states A.O.P. Nicholson. The authors of the reports are: 1. Gunnison & Beckwith, 2. Beckwith, 3. Lander, 4. Pope, 5. Blake, 6. Parke, 7. Emory. (Blake's report is not included in "Contents of Volume II", p.viii.). William P. Blake also did the maps. A Report on the Botany of the Expedition by John Torrey and Asa Gray is included in Beckwith's 2nd report. Condition: Although complete, the book looks a bit rough as the leather backstrip has been replaced with wide brown tape, the corners are bare of the original leather and are worn, and the front inner hinge is broken through completely. The back hinge is intact and the binding still serviceable, text supple and quite readable. The text edges are faded & browned but the text is only slightly agetoned to a creamy white, however, two of the illustration plates are significantly browned, and the last one has some scattered light foxing along the fore edge and somewhat into the illustrion. The maps are clean, intact, strong and supple. The bookplate of Earle R. Forrest is affixed to the front pastedown, and he has rather liberally scattered a discreet rubber stamping of his name throughout the text, but not on any tables or illustrations. Mr. Forrest (1881-1971) was a noted author, fiction and non-, historian and newspaperman, living and working in the southwest and his native Pennsylvania. A few of his works include: The Snake Dance of the Hopi Indians, Missions and Pueblos of the Old Southwest, California Joe, Lone War Trail of Apache Kid, etc. Size: 4to - 11-3/4" x 8-3/4".

Item Description: Washington. 1855-1860., 1860. Twelve volumes bound in thirteen. Profusely illustrated with maps, lithographic plates, colored lithographic plates, profiles, etc. Collated complete with all the maps and plates called for in Wagner-Camp. Large, thick quarto. Modern black buckram, spines gilt. A nice, uniform set. Very good. The Senate issue of the Pacific Railroad Surveys. This large quarto set is the most important and massive compilation of exploration reports and data ever published about the trans-Mississippi West. Under the direction of Secretary of War Jefferson Davis, the Pacific Railroad survey in two years increased the contemporary knowledge of the geography, topography, geology, and natural history of the West by a quantum leap. Included herein are the reports of Humphreys, Stevens, Beckwith, Whipple, Warren, Williamson, Lander, et al, supplemented with reports on scientific observations, and numerous significant achievements in cartography, including Warren's "Map of the Territory of the United States from the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean." (here present in the eleventh volume), which has been hailed as "the best cartographical work on the West up to its time." (Howes). The illustrative material (engraved and lithographed views, specimens of birds, fishes, and other animals) is of the highest quality, often in colored state, and encompasses thousands of illustrations, either in the text or as separate plates. This set includes fully seven reports listed by Wagner-Camp as separate items, and nine listed separately by Howes. Wheat devotes twenty-four pages of detailed discussion to the maps in this series of reports, singling out the Warren map as "among the great maps of the United States that preceded the Civil War." All things considered, this edition of the Pacific Railroad Surveys stands as a testament to one of the greatest government sponsored projects in our history, and is a foundation work for any collection devoted to Western Americana or cartography. It is quite difficult these days to find a set of the Railroad Surveys in a uniform Senate edition (as opposed mixed House and Senate volumes).
