A fine example of Canadian Cartography

Logan Geological maps

A. MURRAY & Sir W. LOGAN

PLANS of various  LAKES and RIVERS between LAKE HURON AND THE RIVER OTTAWA., to accompany the GEOLOGICAL REPORTS for 1853-54-55-56.  

 Ref. SS3/ELN/  >DNNN   PRICE CODE D
4to. Original quarter calf and book cloth binding with red morocco and gilt label on f. cover. Published John Lovell,.Toronto 1857

Drawn under the direction of Sir William E. Logan, Director of the Canadian Geological survey. 21 [of 22] delicately hand tinted plans are examples of early Canadian cartography and record the first Canadian expedition to explore, detail and map  the region. Numerous fascinating topographical and geological notes abound,including dips strikes and soil conditions and rock type.  Each folding sheet (approx. 23 1/4 x 36 1/2")  printed on thin government issue paper so there is some browning and some of the plans have tears along the folds with the passage of time.  Overall the condition is fair to good and clean inside. The binding is rubbed with section of the spine lacking, but Lovell's original binder's label is intact.
Contents:
10 [ of 11] Plans shewing Explorations on the North shore of Lake Huron and thence eastward to the Ottawa.
 7 Plans shewing explorations  between the east shore of Lake Huron and the Ottawa River.
 4 Plans of Bonne-Chere, Madawaska and Shawashkong rivers and sources of the Ottonabee.

Alexander Murray was the assistant provincial geologist under Sir William E. Logan (1798-1875) The first director of the Canadian Geological survey and for whom Mt. Logan is named.


This volume is a real find for those interested in Canadian cartography.
