Most widely held works by Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories (U.S.)
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
Birds of the Northwest : a hand-book of the ornithology of the region drained by the Missouri River and its tributaries by Elliott Coues( Book )
2 editions published in 1874 in English and held by 253 libraries worldwide
This volume is based mainly on an unpublished report prepared by Coues in 1862 from the ornithological collections of F.V. Hayden and G.H. Trook taken during an expedition under Captain W.F. Raynolds, United States Engineers. The author preserved the "List of Specimens" tabulated in the original report, and extended the list with additional material from other collection trips in the West to compile what amounted to a "treatise on the Ornithology of the Western Territories," a desire expressed by F.V. Hayden to Coues

3 editions published in 1880 in English and held by 238 libraries worldwide

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 )
11 editions published between 1876 and 2000 in English and held by 186 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 168 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
Annual report of the United States Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories by Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories (U.S.)( serial )
in English and held by 161 libraries worldwide
Sixth annual report of the United States geological survey of the Territories, embracing portions of Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, and Utah : being a report of progress of the explorations for the year 1872 by Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories (U.S.)( Book )
4 editions published between 1873 and 1975 in English and held by 160 libraries worldwide
Synopsis of the flora of Colorado by Thomas C Porter( Book )
2 editions published in 1874 in English and held by 156 libraries worldwide
While there is no table of contents to the work, an extensive index can provide access to the various families and genera. Some of the descriptions contain citation information and the names and locations of the individuals connected with the specimens are at the end of the descriptions
Fur-bearing animals : a monograph of North American Mustelidae, in which an account of the wolverene, the martens or sables, the ermine, the mink and various other kinds of weasels, several species of skunks, the badger, the land and sea otters, and numerous exotic allies of these animals, is contributed to the history of North American mammals by Elliott Coues( Book )
1 edition published in 1877 in English and held by 150 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

in English and held by 143 libraries worldwide
Descriptive catalogue of photographs of North American Indians by William Henry Jackson( Book )
1 edition published in 1877 in English and held by 125 libraries worldwide
This descriptive catalog is intended to systematize the collection of photographic portraits of Indians now in the possession of the United States Geological Survey of the Territories, and to place on record all the information obtained of the various individuals and scenes represented. It is of course far from complete; but it is a beginning, and every new fact that comes to light will be added to what has already been secured. This information has been gathered from many sources, principally from Indian delegates visiting Washington, and by correspondence with agents and others living in the Indian country. Particular attention has been paid to proving the authenticity of the portraits of the various individuals represented, and it is believed that few, if any, mistakes occur in that respect. All the photographs are numbered, and as these numbers do not occur in regular order, in the text a Numerical Index is appended, by means of which the name of any picture, and the page on which the subject is treated, may be found
