These three maps come from the second report of the Field Operations of the Bureau of Soils, under the direction of Milton Whitney. Each of the maps has a legend identifying the various soil profiles as measured at six feet deep. In addition to the soil types, the maps depict roads, railroads, canals, cities and towns. Surveyed by Thomas Means and published by A. Hoen & Co. The maps include:
A. Soil Map Arizona Phoenix Sheet, (25.1 x 19.6").
B. Soil Map Arizona Tempe Sheet, (20.0 x 12.7").
C. Soil Map Arizona Buckeye Sheet, (25.0 x 8.6").
The maps are mostly clean and bright with a few scattered spots of foxing and some very faint toning along a few folds.
