The First Geological Survey of New Hampshire was organized in 1839 largely through the efforts of Charles T. Jackson. James D. Whitney served as one of four unpaid volunteer assistants until being appointed chemical assistant in 1840. Between 1840 and 1844 three annual reports. In 1841 the first annual report was printed and limited to 400 copies. In this first report Jackson discusses the geology, and stratigraphy of the state, its paleontology, and known minerals and economic mineral deposits and their localities. The report is now quite scarce, especially in this condition.
