Note: This is the third and last issue of this map, published in early 1880. Later in the year, Thayer changed to his version of the Bien / Roeser GLO map (see our #2810). It was first issued in 1878, with a second edition in 1879. Ellis is not fond of this map ("Too much general hachures to show mountains, very few mountain names, towns not too generously supplied, roads not clearly shown, etc.") We find it a very attractive map, however the high degree of hachuring does somewhat limit its clarity. Map is folded into brown cloth covers 15x9 with purple label reading "Thayer's New Map Of The State Of Colorado. One Dollar."

Reference: Ellis 84.
