A large folio Atlas of Yellowstone, produced by the prolific surveyor and geologist, Arnold Hague. Each leaf measures approx. 54.5 x 46 cm.. There are twenty-seven plates (although three are title/contents/legend), and a handful of the plates cover both pages.
A spectacular work. Any fan of maps, our National Parks, or Yellowstone will delight in these large and colorful maps. The sheets focus on topography and geology. Hague was studying and trying to understand the geysers while he prepared the work.
This copy unique in that it was bound with leather spine and corners with marbled boards; others on the market are cloth binding.
