Full Title (Title Page to) Observations on the Geology of the United States, explanatory of a Geological Map. By William Maclure. Read January 20th, 1809. (In) Transactions of the American Philosophical Society, Held at Philadelphia, for promoting Useful Knowledge. Volume VI. Published by C. and A. Conrad and Co. Philadelphia. ... Jane Aitken, Printer. 1809.
Note 1st edition of the first geological map of U.S. A portion of a map of the U.S. by Samuel Lewis is used to make this map. The full sheet of paper was put on a larger plate and pulled, leaving the upper and right side without borders, as issued. Uncut and untrimmed, the map appears here with Maclure's original essay on the geology of the U.S. In 1817 Maclure published an expanded versus of his essay, using the small Melish Map of the U.S. as a base. Maclure was dissatisfied with the Lewis map because of its rendering of the mountains, and an errata slip is attached to the back of p 423 explaining this (and stating that originally it was intended to use a reduction of the Bradley U.S. map). See Marcou 1858 for more discussion of the Lewis map. Maclure did a Paris printing of the article and Map (using a map by Volney as a base) in 1811, in French. The Lewis map is most likely the Map of the U.S. published in the 2nd edition of Carey's American Atlas, 1809 (P-Maps p 876,Walsh). Maclure's map and essay are very rare. There is an inscription on the title page to "Mons. F.A. Michaux-Paris, from his friend..." Map bound into the back of paper covered boards with the title handwritten on the spine. Map in full color by geologic structure.

Note This is the issue of Maclure's paper published by the American Philosophical Society in their Transactions volume of 1818. The map is on heavy paper and is identical to the map published with the 1817 separate edition. Map in full color.

Full Title (Title Page to) Observations on the Geology of the United States of America, With Some Remarks on the Effect Produced on the Nature and Fertility of Soils, By the Decomposition of the Different Classes of Rocks, And An Application to the Fertility of Every State in the Union, In Reference to the Accompanying Geological Map. With Two Plates. By William Maclure. ... Philadelphia: Printed for the Author, by Abraham Small ... 1817. (with) Essay On The Formation of Rocks, Or An Inquiry Into the Probable Origin of Their Present Form and Structure. By William Maclure. ... Philadelphia, Printed by John Wilbank ... 1838.
Note The title page is dated 1817 and the text is unchanged from the 1817 edition, but the Melish base map is changed from the 1817 edition Melish map to one that shows all of Florida and Missouri and Arkansas (with Arkansas in an 1828 formation). The map is the second state (White 1817B), although it is really an entirely different map. It is similar to the Map of The United States that appears in Melish's Traveler's Guide of 1822 and in Carey and Lea's American Atlas, but it has been reengraved, and the title is changed to United States of North America. It is colored geologically, but there is no color key. The same map appears in the Jackson Wreath of 1829, but in an earlier state. Bound in at the back is the "Essay..." mentioned above. This copy belonged to Francis P. Farquhar, noted California historian. Bound in brown cloth covers with "Geology" printed in gold on the spine.

Full Title (Title Page to) Atlas accompanying the report on the geology of New Hampshire. C.H. Hitchcock, State Geologist. 1878. Julius Bien, New York.
Note 17 maps and plates as called for in Vol III, p.vii of text. Huge folio atlas with 2 plates of views, 2 facsimiles (Carrigain 1816 and Holland 1784), 1 diagram or Camera view, a 6 sheet Geological Map of the state, a 5 (of 6, as issued) sheet Map of the state's Surface Geology, and a map of the Ammonoosuc Mining District. The upper northwest sheet of the Surface Geology map was not printed because it is entirely of Vermont, except for a tiny part of the lower right corner which was covered by making the uppper northeast sheet about one inch wider in the Surface Geology issue than it is in the Geological (six sheet) issue. The matter is further confused by Sabin calling for 16 plates and Phillips and LeGear calling for 9. Cobb calls for 17 and the most important list, in the text of the report itself, calls for 17. We believe this was the only large folio Geological Atlas made of an eastern state, on the scale of the western survey atlases of Powell, Hayden, Wheeler and King, during the same period. Most maps have printed color although the Ammonoosuc Mining District map is fully hand colored.

Major General A.A. Humphreys, Chief of Engineers U.S.A. by Clarence King, U.S. Geologist in Charge, 1876. Julius Bien Lith.
Note Magnificent, huge atlas showing the area of the 40th Parallel Survey in topographical and geological maps. Wheat notes: "These are pioneer survey maps, and as such are most interesting. Mapping the West in so broad a cross-section had never before been attempted, a portent of things to come." King, at the age of 25, was made Geologist-in-charge of the Survey in 1867. He was formally ordered "to examine and describe the geological structure, geographical condition and natural resources of a belt of country extending from the 120th meridian eastward to the 105th meridian, along the 40th parallel of latitude with sufficient expansion north and south to include the lines of 'Central' and 'Union Pacific' railroads..." (Wheat). The topographical sheets depict features by brush shading rather than hachuring. In original binding -rare. Bound in green half leather with a label on the front, "Geological and Topographical Atlas Accompanying the Report of the Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel. Clarence King, Geologist in Charge."
