"More than any other persons, John Charles Frémont and Charles Preuss dominate the cartography of the American West during the three years before the gold rush ... Owing to its rarity and to its long having stood in the shadow of the more widely known and distributed Frémont-Preuss map of 1845, Preuss's sectional map of 1846 has been insufficiently appreciated by students of Western history. In particular, those interested either in Frémont's travels in 1842-43 or the revolution of the transcontinental wagon roads will find that the map rewards close study" (Wheat).
