Full Title: (Topographic and glacial feature map of New Hampshire. Sheet 3. Julius Bien, New York, 1878)

List No: 3095.014

Series No: 15

Published In: Atlas accompanying the report on the geology of New Hampshire. C.H. Hitchcock, State Geologist. 1878. Julius Bien, New York.

Publication Author: New Hampshire. Geological Survey ; Hitchcock, Charles H. (Charles Henry), 1836-1919

Publication Date: 1878

Publication Reference: Sabin 52833; Cobb. New Hampshire maps to 1900, 348; P2135; Marcou. Mapoteca geologica americana, 229-231; LeGear. Atlases of the United States, L 2299.

Publication Note: 17 maps and plates as called for in Vol III, p.vii of text. Huge folio atlas with 2 plates of views, 2 facsimiles (Carrigain 1816 and Holland 1784), 1 diagram or Camera view, a 6 sheet Geological Map of the state, a 5 (of 6, as issued) sheet Map of the state's Surface Geology, and a map of the Ammonoosuc Mining District. The upper northwest sheet of the Surface Geology map was not printed because it is entirely of Vermont, except for a tiny part of the lower right corner which was covered by making the uppper northeast sheet about one inch wider in the Surface Geology issue than it is in the Geological (six sheet) issue. The matter is further confused by Sabin calling for 16 plates and Phillips and LeGear calling for 9. Cobb calls for 17 and the most important list, in the text of the report itself, calls for 17. We believe this was the only large folio Geological Atlas made of an eastern state, on the scale of the western survey atlases of Powell, Hayden, Wheeler and King, during the same period. Most maps have printed color although the Ammonoosuc Mining District map is fully hand colored.
