Title: (US West) Map of a Reconnoissance...
Mapmaker: Stansbury
Published: 1852

Map of a Reconnoissance between Fort Leavenworth on the Missouri River, and the Great Salt Lake in the Territory of Utah, made in 1849 and 1850 under the orders of Col.J.J. Abert...

After the historic work that Preuss and Fremont created with their "Map of an Exploring Expedition to the Rocky Mountains…. there was a solid skeletal understanding of this portion of the West, but there was still a lot of work to do. While Preuss/Fremont unveiled the understanding South Pass, and the "Park System" of the Rocky Mountains, and the major drainages as they worked up through the foothills of the Rockies, and more, this map picks up where its predecessor left off.

Here, Stansbury goes westward beyond the Park system codified by Preuss/Fremont, connecting through to the Great Salt Lake region, its major terrain and development. An important map for looking at the primitive western slope of Colorado when it was still Utah Territory and just basic depictions of the White and Yampa Rivers.

Light original hand color helps distinguish the borders of the New Mexico terr., Utah terr., and a sprawling "Indian Territory" covering the plains.

Condition is very good, and has been professionally restored and tissue backed. Overall size is approximately 28.5 x 67.5 (inches)
