Ca 4 1/2 x 7 1/2. Lithographs by Ackerman, New York. A few prints with light spotting and a few with narrow margins. Overall, very good condtion and appearance.

Howard Stansbury, a Captain in the U.S. Topographical Engineers, was assigned in 1849 to survey the region of the Great Salt Lake, looking for a possible route for a transcontinental railway and for a better route from Fort Bridger, in Wyoming, to Salt Lake City. The report included scientific appendixes with illustrations and a group of excellent tinted lithographs showing scenes around the Great Salt Lake.
