SECOND REPORT ON METEOROLOGY TO THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY [ESPY'S REPORT ON METEOROLOGY]

By Espy, James P[Ollard]

Washington, Dc:: Government Printing Office. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1850. First Edition. Flexible cloth. B/w/red; Oblong folio; 65 pages; 14.5" x 11". Front end paper with creases, first three leaves with quite light and minor foxing. 100 partly color [numerals], maps, 11 folding maps/charts, all collated. These folding plates are quite large- often 20 x 30" or even larger and have occasional folds but seem free of tears.. Bound in publisher's brown cloth with impressed design and gilt title. Sabin 22917. The author of this work, James Pollard Espy, nicknamed "The Storm King" for his classic book, The Philosophy of Storms, was the first Meteorologist of the US Government, pioneering in the use of the telegraph to assemble weather observation data. Espy designed the first American weather map for a private scientific institute in 1838, before he moved to Washington. His first official meteorological report was published in 1843, but apparently included no maps. So the 100+ "Charts" in this second report represent the first weather maps published by the US Government. .
