Report upon the Reconnaissance of Northwestern Wyoming, including Yellowstone National Park, made in the Summer of 1873
U.S. Government Printing Office, Washington [D.C.] 1875 - Howes J245. Wheat 1241. Pilling 2040. Author's copy. The expanded second edition (chapters IX to XV inclusive, of Professor Comstock's Geological Report were prepared after the Congressional Document [H.R. Ex.Doc. No. 285, 43d Cong.,1st sess.] had gone through the press, and consequently do not appear in that edition of the report). By far the largest contribution is by Theodore B. Comstock (1849-1915) who went on to be the first president of the University of Arizona. This document reports Jones' discovery of Togwotee Pass, the southern route out of the Yellowstone Basin which previous explorers had failed to find. See Wheat pp. 298-9. Provenance: Kenneth E. Hill (bookplate), Theo. B. Comstock (his library stamp). Spine tips worn with loss, extremities worn, otherwise a very good copy, small bookplate and inked stamp on front pastedown, occasional corner creases. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
