Description:

The Earliest Atlas Map To Focus on The Salt Lake City Region and Mormon Settlements

Two excellent early regional maps of the Salt Lake area.

The upper map extends a bit west of the Lake to the Uintas and South to Lake Utah, as well as considerably east of the lake and the Wasatch. Includes a town plan for Salt Lake, roads, other towns, rivers, etc.

The lower map focuses on the area around Salt Lake City and includes a nice town grid, plus some other areas south of downtown which are recently laid out, including Welsh settlement and Big Field. The City Mill is shown, as is another mill, a cave and other fine details.

A scarce map, one of the best early maps of the area which is reasonably obtainable by collectors. 


Condition Description: Evidence of old folds.
