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 )

2 editions published between 1877 and 1971 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member 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
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 254 WorldCat member 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This volume is based mainly on an unpublished report prepared by Coues in 1862 from the ornithological collections of F.V. Hayden and G.H. Trook taken during an expedition under Captain W.F. Raynolds,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

Birds of the Colorado Valley : a repository of scientific and popular information concerning North American ornithology by Elliott Coues( Book )

1 edition published in 1878 in English and held by 177 WorldCat member 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
Tenth annual report of the United States Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories embracing Colorado and parts of adjacent territories : being a report of progress of the exploration for the year 1876 by Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories (U.S.)( )

2 editions published in 1878 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

1 edition published in 1874 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bulletin of the United States Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories( )

in English and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 149 WorldCat member 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
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 )

Descriptive catalogue of photographs of North American Indians by William Henry Jackson( Book )

1 edition published in 1877 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member 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
