Most widely held works by Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories (U.S.)
The fur-bearing animals of North America by Elliott Coues( Book )
2 editions published between 1877 and 1970 in English and held by 369 libraries worldwide
This treatise on Fur-bearing Animals of North America, prepared by Dr. Elliott Coues, is published as a specimen fasciculus of a systematic History of North American Mammals, upon which the author has been long engaged. It is believed that the Monograph satisfactorily reflects the present state of our knowledge of these animals, and forms a desirable contribution to the literature of the general subject. The Muselidae, like most other families of North American mammals, have not been systematically revised for many years, during which much new material, hitherto unused, has become available for the purposes of science
Ethnography and philology of the Hidatsa Indians by Washington Matthews( Book )
3 editions published between 1877 and 1971 in English and held by 325 libraries worldwide
This work is based on Dr. Washington Matthews studies of the Hidatsa Indians while stated at a military post and serving as a medical officer of the Army. This work presents what Matthews learned by observing manners, customs, and other characteristics, as well as making a close and careful study of their language. The original intent was to publish this treatise as a portion of a general work on Indian ethnography, but a delay in publishing the larger work made it desirable to prepare this material as a separate publication

Report on the geology of the eastern portion of the Uinta Mountains and a region of country adjacent thereto : With atlas by Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories (U.S.)( Book )
12 editions published between 1876 and 2000 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
The Colorado River of the West drains a vast system of plateaus. On these plateaus are lone mountains, short ranges and groups of volcanic cones, and the principal effluents of the river have their sources in high mountains that stand on the rim of the great drainage basin. There is no considerable valley along the course of the Colorado River north of the thirty-fifth parallel nor along the course of any of its principal tributaries. The streams run chiefly in deep canons which, with other important topographic features, serve to divide the area into plateaus
Birds of the Colorado Valley : a repository of scientific and popular information concerning North American ornithology by Elliott Coues( Book )
2 editions published in 1878 in English and held by 173 libraries worldwide
This treatise may be regarded as complementary to the "Birds of the Northwest" (Misc. Pub. No. 3). It covers much ground not gone over in the latter work, in all that relates to the technicalities of the general subject, as well as to the particular life-histories of the birds composing the remarkable avian fauna of the Colorado Basin. As originally projected for publication in a different connection, the work consisted merely of a report upon the peculiar features of bird-life in the area under consideration, with biographies of the species not treated in the "Birds of the Northwest". But the author's resources have proved to be so largely in excess of the requirements of such a report that the work has outgrown the limits of a single volume, and become a full exposition of our present knowledge of the subject, by the incorporation of much technical matter concerning North American ornithology at large, hitherto the private possession of the author and now first made accessible to the public
