Report on the Geology of the High Plateaus of Utah (No Atlas) Wallace Stegner's Copy
Washington, D. C.: Government Printing Office. Fair. 1880. First Edition. Hardcover. Brown government binding with blind rules on front and back and gilt title on spine. Spine cloth is loosening, chipped and missing 1/2" at base. Boards rubbed and loosening. Text block remains tight. Ex- library copy from New York Academy of Sciences. No atlas. All plates are present. This copy was used by Wallace Stegner in his research for "Beyond the Hundredth Meridian", although there is no indication within; no marginalia or owners signature. "Beyond the Hundredth Meridian" was unlike any of Stegner's previous works, requiring research spanning 5 years. Stegner often consulted with his mentor Bernard DeVoto during the writing. At one point Stegner writes to DeVoto, "I really am scared to death to let anybody see this, for some reason. Maybe I know the thing stinks." The writing of Hundredth Meridian would solidify Stegner's growing environmentalism and the book remains a classic of the history of the west. Book was acquired directly from the Stegner family. ; 4to 11" - 13" tall; 307 pp .
