Note Map includes a chart of meteorological observations giving remarks, the temperature reading, and the altitude. Buffalo are present in "inumerable bands," and it is suggested that the dung be used for fuel. Timber is scarce , except on the islands. It is noted that the Pawnee pose a threat to the traveler as they are likely to rob the emigrants along the route. A note from Fremont's report about the first viewing of the buffalo is included below the map.

Full Title (Composite of) Map of the Territory of the United States, west of the Mississippi River. (Prepared by authority of the Hon. the Secretary of War in the Office of the Chief of Engineers under the direction of Brig. General A.A. Humphreys Chief of Engineers and Brevet Maj. Gen. U.S. Army.

Note 5 original sheets of 6, with the title sheet No. 6 (southeast corner) is photocopy. Each sheet is dissected into 24 sections and backed with linen. Wheat: "a complex map very different in aspect from that of 1868, yet no less beautiful, and employing the new information that had reached the War Department during the 1870's." It is a complete redrawing of the Freyhold/Warren map of 1868, larger in scale, and so dense in information that the itineraries are no longer shown. There is an inset of Alaska in the lower right. This copy belonged to James Douglas, the founder of the Phelps Dodge mining empire in Arizona and for whom Douglas, Arizona, was named. In the same year the Army issued somewhat larger versions of this map on thin paper for field use, one example being the Map of California and Nevada with Parts of Utah & Arizona (see our #3360). Each sheet folds with a marbled end paper into brown cloth covers 21.5x12.5, the sheet no. and region shown in each map is written in ms on the inside covers, alongside bookplates reading "Jamais Arriere. Ex Libris James Douglas. History Science Literature Theology ..." The photocopy of sheet 6 folds into new brown cloth covers very similar to the original covers. All six maps reside in a new brown cloth slip case 22.5x13.5 with a black label on spine reading "Territory of the U.S. west of the Mississippi River. Edward Freyhold. 1879" in gilt. With outline color by state, water in full color.
