Pub Note:
A collection of 135 Topographical and Geological Atlas sheets. An almost complete collection of all the Wheeler survey maps originally owned by the Salt Lake Mining Institute. I have since added maps to make it nearly a complete set, following the listing in P1281 (which lists 179 sheets). Many of the sheets in the original Salt Lake Mining Institute set have the signature of Ovando Hollister, an important figure in western mining history.
