Description

Scarce map of the region between Ft. Leavanworth and the Rockies, showing Santa Fe, Taos, Pikes Peak and the Black Hills in the west to Ft. Leavenworth and Ft.Gibson in the east. The map appeared in Kingsbury's report of his expedition to the Rockies in the summer of 1835. A nice example of this important western map, being the reduced edition published by Bowen & Co. in Philadelphia. Wagner Camp (63) refers to the map as a great rarity. The map shows Indian territories, villages, rivers, the tracks of the expedition, Bent's Trading House, Spanish Peaks, the Old Santa Fe Trail and Fontaine Que Bouillant east of Pikes Peak. Wheat 421. Offered here with Dodge's Report On The Expedition Of Dragoons, Under Colonel Henry Dodge, To The Rocky Mountains In 1835 (16pp, disbound from larger government report). Fine condition.
