These seven text volumes were published from 1875 to 1889. They consist the final, monumental report of Wheeler's Survey. The first volume, Geographical Report, contains much valuable information on the general history of western U.S. mapping and specific details on the sources of the Survey's map sheets. The Topographic and Geologic Atlas were issued separately. Bound in linen with title, date, volume number and topic on the spine.
