About this Item: Government Printing Office, Washington, 1878. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Rebound in beautiful marbled paper boards and half leather binding, title gilt on spine; new pastedowns and endpapers; leather spine labels, likely from original boards, pasted onto pocket at rear pastedown. Includes three folding color maps housed in pocket at rear pastedown. Titles of maps: "Map of Utah Territory, Representing the Extent of the Irrigable, Timber, and Pasture Lands," "Map of the United States Exhibiting the Grants of Lands Made by the General Government to Aid in the Construction of Railroads and Wagon Roads," and "Rain Chart of the United States. Powell's report provides an overview of water issues in the dry West." Maps are in good condition. All are very fragile at folds and have closed tears and light toning; the "Rain Chart" map has a clean tear along one fold spanning almost 9" but could be easily repaired. Boards are in fine condition; text block has light toning to moderate toning throughout. This book was compiled by Powell in the late 1870's and was "intended to show how the land system of the West could be reshaped through changes in land and water laws before additional settlement might make reform impossible." This report is now one of the classics of Western history. Flake 6431. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 195 pp. Seller Inventory # 016177
