Pacific Railroad Surveys

From: "Kevin Bill",

After cleaning out "Mother's attic," I have in my possession a copy of what seems to be Volume 4 of Lieutenant A.W. Whipple's Corp of Topographical Engineers report to the 33rd congress dated 1856. It contains many botanical illustrations as well as astronomical and climatological observations.

I ... would appreciate any information on this book and if many copies still exist.
