Part 25 [REVISED OCTOBER 2020 : SEE SPECIAL NOTE FARTHER BELOW]
GENERAL MAPS OF THE GRAND CANYON AND LOWER COLORADO RIVER REGIONS
Separately published general and specialized maps, charts, and atlas sheets that include the Grand Canyon or the lower Colorado River region — excluding geologic and topographic maps
Preceded by illustrations of several special, scarce maps of early historical importance to the Colorado River and Grand Canyon; and a list of cartobibliographical works selected from Part 1 (Bibliographies and Indices) of THE GRAND CANON
Section 1 — Selected Historical Maps of the 16th–18th Centuries
Section 2 — Maps of the 19th-21st Centuries
Section 3 — Chronological List of All Maps in Sections 1 & 2
Part 25 has hugely increased in size and has undergone significant editing since the release of the 3rd Edition of The Grand Canon in January 2019. In addition, significant cross-listings to Carl I. Wheat’s Mapping the Transmississippi West have been added for the first time to this part of the bibliography. And, a third section has been introduced that lists all maps in Part 25 in chronological order.
To enable the use of this section in a more timely manner than by awaiting the release of the 4th Edition of The Grand Canon, this preprint of Part 25 from the 4th Edition has been made available. This is Version 2 of the preprint (October 2020); Version 1 was dated May 2020 and is superseded here.
There is as yet no projected date for the completion of the 4th Edition. Version 2 of the advance preprint includes hundreds more citations than which appeared in Version 1, and an improved format for Section 3.
The document on this page supersedes the PDF that was originally available from the 3rd Edition. Note, however, that the full volume of the 3rd Edition, which is accessible through links on this website, retains the original presentation, as released in January 2019.
