Description:

Highly detailed General Land Office Map of Colorado, prepared by Charles Roeser.

The map is one of the most detailed maps of Colorado published in the 1870s and shows the progress of the GLO's surveys, which have now completed about 65% of the Township subdivisions.  The principal meridians and base lines are labeled.

Excellent topographicl detail in the Rocky Mountains, although there are still some notable areas that are completely unsurveyed, including the area south of Mt. Powell and north of Breckenridge and large tracts of land in the west and southwest.

These early GLO maps of Colorado show the progress of both the surveys and the settlement of the Territory, as the mining boom fanned out westward from its origins along the Eastern slopes.


Condition Description: Minor toning at fold. Flattened and backed.
