Howes J133, "First edition in book form, but styles itself 2nd edition, having previously appeared in a periodical. Favors the Northern route and predicts a great future for the Columbia River region." Graff 2216, Wagner-Camp 239e, "Edwin Johnson's competence as an engineer may be gauged by the fact that he subsequently became engineer-in-chief to the directors of the Northern Pacific Railroad Company. His analysis of the western railroad routes lacked the information soon to be obtained by the United States Railroad Surveys, which were just beginning when he composed this work. Nevertheless, he presents a thorough summary of what was known about western geography and topography at the time.". Bookseller Inventory # 14217
