USGS Folios

Additions / Changes / Price adjustments to this catalog noted in this color for 2019

Almost 2000 folios were acquired during September, 2019.  This page will be completely be reconstructed showing two prices for many folios.  A higher price for the near perfect folios and a half price to those which had some damage (which I have repaired in some way).

The only problem that some folios have is their covers which were constructed from a brown paper which became more brittle over the years.  These covers commonly have small chips along their edges.  Occasionally there are large chips, tears, and even have sections missing.  The internal pages were of a white, high-quality paper which seldom has a problem.  So the interior geologic maps are normally of a consistantly high quality even though they are over 100 years of age.




Due to the size of these folios, they are shipped rolled inside a heavy 4' carpet tube wrapped in heavy paper, please add $ 5 for each tube (A single tube will hold up to about 5 to 6 folios)
