Note: One of the earliest, and most important government maps of the Great Salt Lake area. Wheat calls this map "a major production...for the Great Salt Lake itself the map was definitive...Scientific cartography for the Territory of Utah may be said to date from the appearance of this map." It is a stunning map, large in scope, and clearly shows the genius of Charles Preuss as a cartographer. Issued in a folder with the large Stansbury "Map of a Reconnoissance between Fort Leavenworth..." Bodies of water have light blue outline color.

Reference: Wheat 765.
