Description:

125 pp. + [3] blank "Memorandum" pp. Illustrated from photographs by F. Jay Haynes.  Folding map. (12mo) 17x12 cm (6¾x4¾"),  thin boards lettered in gilt.

Scarce guide to Yellowstone National Park. The folding map is "Map of the Yellowstone National Park. Compiled from different official explorations and our personal survey, 1882. Carl L. Hals and A. Rydstrom Civil Engineers." It measures 26.7x20.2 cm.  Warren Heckrotte comments on his dating of the book: "The latest date mentioned in text is 1889; I date it at 1890 for that reason. Whittlesey, Yellowstone Place Names, gives 1890 as the first issue. Dawson's Cat 499 dates this at 1882, but evidently on the basis of the date on the map."
