The maps are in color, photo pages include many photos per page. I use sheet, page and plate interchangeably on this page as each map sheet or photo plate is a page. I do not know what "Library Edition" signifies - these look the same as the others. Condition : Very Good condition unless otherwise noted. Clean, flat. Covers mildly tanned, contents faintly tanned. Cover may be faintly soiled. FOLIOS are flat, the photo was taken at a slight angle.
FOLIOS typically will be shipped in a separate container from the rest of your publication order. I will ship most folios FLAT between large sheets of cardboard. Please ask if you need or want a different kind of shipping.
Geological and Geographical Atlas of Colorado and Portions of Adjacent Territory by Ferdinand Vandiveer Hayden (FV Hayden). 1877, 1881, Publisher Jules Bien, Government Printing Office, Washington DC. Large folio format About 27” x 20”, each double page folded map sheet measures 26.5” x 37”. All of the map sheets were tipped in on a special cloth reinforced tab, which means that the entire sheet lays open flat and there is no central loss in a crease. This rare and early atlas represents four years of field work by the Hayden Survey. "This Atlas is composed of two series of maps: the first, of four sheets, on a scale of twelve miles to one inch, each covering the whole State of Colorado; the second, of twelve sheets, (six topographical and six geological, of identical areas,) on a scale of four miles to one inch, each sheet embracing two and one-half degrees of Longitude and one and one-quarter degrees of Latitude, the whole presenting the results of the field work of 1873, '74, '75 and '76, covering the entire State of Colorado and adjacent portions of Utah, Arizona and New Mexico."--F.V. Hayden (in the introduction). NOTE : This Atlas was missing the title page, so I cannot be absolutely certain if it is the 1877 or the 1881 edition. However, I compared two intact Atlases, one of each edition, and found that this one has a cover like the 1881 edition. A 2Neat Customer informed me that the presence of the town of Leadville on the Central Colorado sheet means that it is definitely the 1881 edition. The sheets inside the two editions appear to be otherwise identical.
Lucky you! I recently acquired a partial Hayden atlas, with the sheets already disbound. This means that you have the opportunity to buy and frame a single sheet of history without the expense of a complete volume and the guilt that would come with taking apart such a masterpiece. Instead, you can think of it as a public service to display one of these sheets for all to enjoy. These lovely old maps show many towns that no longer exist (ghost towns) and have some shown under names that aren’t used anymore – a neat way to experience part of the history of your favorite area. For example, the sheet showing the home area of 2Neat Books is old enough that our town shows as South Arkansas instead of Salida, the main pass through the mountains doesn’t yet have a road and two railroads lines that no longer exist show through the mountains.
Condition : All sheets are clean, slightly tanned, and with a small water mark dipping about half an inch into the outer edge of the upper and lower margin – this can easily be covered with a mat, leaving a nice amount of blank margin all around. The cloth reinforced tab to which the sheet was tipped in on is still present.
USGS Folio 9 : Geologic Atlas of the United States : 1894 : Anthracite – Crested Butte Folio, Colorado. By Samuel Franklin Emmons, Whitman Cross, and George H. Eldridge. PLATES : Contains 2 sheets topographic maps (Anthracite sheet and Crested Butte sheet), 2 sheets color Areal geology maps (A and CB sheets), 2 sheets color economic geology maps (A and CB sheets), 2 sheets color structure sections (A and CB sheets), 1 sheet columnar sections. TEXT : Contains 2 pages of generic explanation text (inside face of each cover) that seems to be common to all folios, 3 full pages of text “Description of the Elk Mountains,” 2 pages of text “Description of the Igneous formations,” 4 pages of text plus a page of tables “Description of the Sedimentary formations. The cover includes the words “Library Edition.” The Anthracite sheet includes the townsites of Baldwin, Irwin, Pittsburgh, and Elkton. The Crested Butte sheet includes the townsites of Crested Butte and Gothic. In each case, the coverage area of the two sheets matches along one edge if you are planning to frame them. EXTREMELY SCARCE.
Condition of Folio 9 : Good/Fair. Complete, intact, all plate sheets are clean and bright. Both covers have some short pieces of brown tape : Three pieces (total) wrap around the spine ends and extend about two inches onto the cover paper, the front cover also has one other tear about 4 inches long that is taped, the back cover has two shorter taped tears. The covers do NOT have chipped edges (it is extremely rare for an older folio not to have chipped edges) but the edges do have a number of very short tears. The front cover has some numbers and a few words (the owner’s name and town, I think : Harry Coppin of Crested Butte). None of the cover words or illustrations are obscured by tape or writing. The leading text pages have a mild water spot in the lower margin corner, it is not present on the plate sheets. There are some short archival-tape repairs in the lower margin of one text sheet and five plate sheets, the tape does not obscure or cover any part of the plates or the text on the plate sheets. It would be easily covered by a mat if you plan to frame the maps. The back cover has mild soil and a small hole (book worm?) that extends through back cover, columnar section sheet, and – barely – the CB structure section sheet, where it is not noticeable. All pages have a one inch long slit tear in the turning edge margin which does not reach any of the text or plate content. One page of text has two short lines, one is an underline, one is a margin line, each about 2 inches long. Although this very detailed description may make it sound worse than it is … this is a nice, well-reserved copy of a rare early folio. A great find for you!! $195

Front cover has an ownership stamp. All else VG.). $142
