Chimney Peak. Colorado Exploring Expedition frontispiece. J.J. Young from a sketch by H.B. Mollhausen. Lith. of Sarony, Major & Knapp, 449 Broadway, N.Y. In Charge. (Washington: Government Printing Office. 1861. Senate. 36th Congress, 1st Session. Ex. Doc.) | Report Upon The Colorado River of the West, Explored in 1857 and 1858 By Lieutenant Joseph C. Ives, Corps Of Topographical Engineers, Under The Direction Of The Office Of Explorations And Surveys, A.A. Humphreys, Captain Topographical Engineers, In Charge. By Order Of The Secretary Of War. Washington: Government Printing Office. 1861. Senate. 36th Congress, 1st Session. Ex. Doc. | This is the scarce Senate issue with four maps by "Baron" Egloffstein. Egloffstein used a unique engraving process to achieve a superb rendering of topographical features; he used the same technique in the map is drew for Macomb's Report (see our #2699). Of the maps in Ives's Report Wheat said "The two maps were drawn by F.W. Egloffstein...the first...is one of his best." Rare in this form with the two additional geological maps in color wash. These only appear in the Senate issue. They are the same as the two "normal" maps that appear in the House and Senate issue, but they have colors overlaid to show geological formations. Report bound with blue cloth covered boards with title on spine.
