223 pp. 6 large folding colored maps. (8vo) 23x14.5 cm (9x5¾") original green cloth, gilt spine. Second Edition, Revised. First published in 1860 with the title "The Central Gold Region. The Grain, Pastoral, and Gold Regions of North America", the reissue adopted a new title and replaced the original 6 small folding maps with 6 new large ones that better illustrate Gilpin’s peculiar geopolitical theories about civilization, climate, and geography. Gilpin accompanied Fremont’s expedition across the Plains to Oregon in 1843 and later served as the first Territorial Governor of Colorado. The maps include 3 of North America (mountain and plain systems, and isothermal); 2 showing the mountain "parcs" of Colorado and the West; and 1 of the world. For 1860 edition, see Sabin 27468; Howes G192. Scarce will all maps present.
