Carl Wheat's monumental work on western cartography. This is the Martino reprint, limited to 350 copies. Lists1302 maps, fully annotated with 376 illustrated. This reprint is in a size that is much more useful than the original first edition which was published from San Francisco between 1957 and 1963. Illustrated throughout with facsimile maps, many folding and colored. Considered the definitive work detailing the mapping of the American West with an excellent bibliography. In green cloth boards, gilt-lettered spine.
