My favourites of his work:
Kachemak Bay
Mt. Kennedy Shading
Grand Canyon

While on the subject of the Grand canyon map, I found this great account of Bradford Washburn's surveying expeditions

I think one of the first maps of the Grand Canyon was the best.

It was completed as part of the Pacific Railroad Surveys in 1858.

The cartographer was Baron Wilhelm von Egloffstein and his hillshading was way ahead of its time. In fact the shading was so precise the lithographers in New York couldn't reproduce them, so Egloffstein invented the half-tone press!
