The two scarce large folding maps from Stansbury's important “Exploration and Survey of the Valley of the Great Salt Lake of Utah” and of the Salt Lake Basin that included his report on the newly established Mormon settlements, as well as the routes and passes through the Rockies for emigrants and possibly a railroad. Wheat describes Stansbury's explorations in detail, and says his Map of the Great Salt Lake permanently established the topography and many of the place names of northwestern Utah. These two maps were issued separately in a folder, and are often not found with the bound volume. Wagner-Camp 219:2; Moffat, 26; Wheat, Transmississippi 3, Maps 764-5.

Folder with a few nicks to spine; maps with some darkening, splitting and wear at some of the folds; overall very good.
