Holt, G.L.
1883
$675.
Holt's map of Wyoming is the pinnacle of historical maps of Wyoming. The level of detail and accuracy of this map is nothing short of astounding. The author attempts to show every ranch, stage stop, river crossing, and any other point of interest in the territory. The map is a printed color lithograph, published in Cheyenne, drafted by Frank and Fred Bond, printed by N. Peters - Washington. The importance of this map is emphasized by the fact that it is the latest entry in Carl Wheat's history of the mapping of the US west. The map was also adopted by the territorial legislature as the first official map of the territory. It was originally published as a folding map in covers. This reduced version was a part of an Interior Dept. report.***Wheat # 1302
