About this Item: Institute of Historical Cartography, San Francisco, first edition, 1957-1963, 1957. Limited edition of 1000 copies, Volume I printed at the Grabhorn Press. 5 vols in 6, green cloth spines and beige cloth sides, folio, 37 cm, xiii, [1], 264 + xiii, 281+ xiii, 349 + xiii, 260 + xviii, 222 + 223-487 pp, maps (some folded, frontispieces colour). The finely-printed first edition of this classic work, which comprises: v. 1. The Spanish entrada to the Louisiana Purchase, 1540-1804. v. 2. From Lewis and Clark to Fremont, 1804-1845. v. 3. From the Mexican War to the Boundary Surveys, 1846-1854. v. 4. From the Pacific Railroad Surveys to the onset of the Civil War, 1855-1860. v. 5. From the Civil War to the Geological Survey. (parts I and II). From a contemporary review by George Kish: " In over sixteen hundred pages of text, tables and indices, the author produced a work that will for many a year stand as a monument of historical cartography. Carl Wheat begins his work with a report on the appearance of the Spaniard, first European to know, and to settle, in the West in 1540. He ends his last volume with a brief resume of the origins and establishment of the United States Geological Survey, in 1879. . Three hundred and seventy-five maps, reproduced in black and-white, except for a colored frontispiece for each of the five volumes, provide a series of illustrations for the text, showing the growing precision of the cartographic image. Volume I of the work deals with explorations and early settlement by Spaniards, Frenchmen, and Englishmen. The bulk of the study, the remaining four volumes, deal with the relatively short time span 1804-1879, the period when the West, unknown prior to the presidency of Thomas Jefferson, was opened up by a series of expeditions. . In addition to the text, each volume contains a "Biblio cartography", arranged in chronological order, with titles, measurement, description, location and available reproductions of 1302 maps. Tome II of the last volume also carries an alphabetical index, a most useful quick reference tool for locating detailed data on each map. . Careful attention was paid to all facets of production, to typography, layout, and map facsimiles, bringing out a series of volumes that are a credit to their writer, designer, and printer. This reviewer is convinced that Carl Wheat's six volumes will stand with those by Harrisse, Phillips and Wagner among the great studies of American cartography." A Near Fine set. Publisher's brochure announcing the series and publication of the first volume laid in. Seller Inventory # ABE-44236

About this Item: The Institute of Historical Cartography, printed by the Grabhorn Press, Taylor & Taylor, and the James Printing Company, San Francisco, 1963. Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. First and Limited Edition. Each volume being one of 1000 copies, the first edition of the work, folio size, approx. 1720 pp. One of 1,000 sets printed over six years, all designed by Edwin and Robert Grabhorn, published between 1957 and 1963; Volume One was printed by them, Volumes Two through Four by Taylor & Taylor, and Volume Five (Parts I and II) by the James Printing Company. "Majestic" is the word that immediately springs to mind when beholding this scholarly work by Carl Irving Wheat (1892-1966), who remains known to bibliophiles the world over for his work. In addition to an important bibliography on the works of the Gold Rush, as well as several other books, he is perhaps best remembered for this set, which has been called his "milestone work". Mr. Wheat's inspiration for this came with the rediscovery of a copy of the 1847 Fremont map with manuscript emendations by George Gibbs which were from an unknown source, and which showed, in pencil, the travels by western explorer Jedediah Smith. A contemporary book review stated "Carl Wheat's Mapping of the Transmississippi West is a comprehensive and readable cartographic history of the American West. These beautifully printed books present a truly graphic picture of the exploration and peopling of the vast unknown land west of the Mississippi. The author does not merely present a catalog of significant maps of each era but tells the exciting story of the many facets of history that resulted in their making - of the hard journeys, the hazardous exploits, the motivation, the mysticism, the misunderstandings and the strange blend of fact, imagination, false geographic concept and political necessity which were consummated in the engraver's work". Replete with over 350 maps this set is a delight to cartographers, as well as those with an interest in either western exploration or American history.___DESCRIPTION: Quarter green morocco over tan buckram boards, gilt lettering on the backs, plain endpapers, title pages printed in red and black, a map frontispiece at the beginning of each volume (excepting Part II of Volume Five), each chapter with a large, decorated initial capital in red; folio size (14.5" by 10.5"), pagination: Volume One: [i-iv], v-xiii, [xiv], 1-264; Volume Two: [i-iv], v-xiii, [xiv] blank, 1-281; Volume Three: [i-iv], v-xiii, [xiv] blank, 1-349; Volume Four: [i-iv], v-xiii, [xiv] blank, 1-260; Volume Five, Part I: [i-iv], v-xviii, [xix-xx], divisional title and blank, 1-222; Volume Five, Part II: [i-iv], 223-487; a prior owner bookplate (partially removed around the edges) on the front pastedown of Volume One; this set lacking the rarely found dust jackets.___CONDITION: Set is in near fine to fine condition, each volume with solid bindings, the corners are straight and unrubbed, each volume has a strong, square text block with solid hinges, the interiors are clean and bright, the paper crisp; other than the bookplate referred to above, the set is entirely free of prior owner markings. The only condition issues we see are a shallow bump to the top edge of the front board of Volume One, an extremely gentle bump to the head of the spine of Volume Three and some general light soiling, mostly to Volume One. All maps are present and in excellent condition; a handsome set of the first printing of this seminal work.___POSTAGE: Please note that this set is extremely large and heavy, and therefore additional postage will need to apply; we are happy to ship at cost to both domestic and international customers, please inquire for details.___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB, and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell. Please contact us with any questions you may have, we are here to help. Seller Inventory # 17121801
