LEADVILLE, COLORADO

Page 4

 

Leadville books, old photographs and maps, pamphlets and prospectuses give us an intriguing glimpse into what people believed was significant in the days of the silver boom.  Over a century later, every book and photograph offers a captivating perspective for the exuberant historian.  Please inquire about the historical publication you desire.

 

HISTORY OF THE ARKANSAS VALLEY, COLORADO, Illustrated, 1881

Chicago: O.L. Baskin & Co., Historical Publishers, 186 Dearborn Street, 1881.  O.L. Baskin and Nelson Millett.  First edition in original gold-embossed board and leather binding; 889 pages, complete with all steel-engraved plates.  This is one of the Colorado history classics, with details of discoveries, plattings, pioneering, settlement, railroading, mining, development, people, and more in the following areas of the Arkansas Valley: Lake County; Ten-Mile-Region; El Paso County; Chaffee County; Fremont County; Custer County; Pueblo County; and Bent County.  Steel-engraved portraits and views of important people, mines, homes, residences, and schools.  This is an ex-library book; however, the binding is still strong; pages are clean and bright; ex-library markings evident, but not obtrusive -- they appear on front endpaper, flyleaf and title page (title page actually only has three small markings). Portrait of H.A.W. Tabor in facsimile.  Overall condition: good plus to very good.

GEOLOGY AND MINING INDUSTRY OF LEADVILLE, COLORADO, 1883, 1886

 

WITH ATLAS

 

By Samuel Franklin Emmons

GEOLOGY AND MINING INDUSTRY OF LEADVILLE, COLORADO (1883), with ATLAS (1886). By Samuel Franklin Emmons. United States Geological Survey, Monograph XII; Washington: Government Printing Office, 1883 (atlas) and 1886 (monograph).

 The 770-page monograph is in original leather binding with gold print on spine. The overall condition of monograph is very good plus; binding is strong with little wear; one hinge internally reinforced; marbled endpapers; all plates, figures, and illustrations are present.

The 35-page atlas was printed in 1883. This copy is the flat-sheet, non-folding edition. It is lacking the original printed gray wrappers.

All atlas sheets are bright and clean; several have minor flaws (a chipped corner or a tiny closed-end tear); one double-width sheet has been professionally conserved on back and tear barely noticeable on front with no information missing.

All atlas are present. This set in original condition is getting more and more difficult to find, especially in such nice condition as this.

 The S.F. Emmons Leadville monograph and atlas is only second to Dutton's work on the Grand Canyon in the USGS monograph and atlas series.

This monograph and atlas is a foundation stone in any Leadville research collection. 

The atlas sheets exhibited here are exemplary of the very good plus to near fine condition of this highly detailed, excellently produced Leadville atlas.

"... But never again as during that all too short period when he and I were one person, when the fulfilled future and the wistful past were mingled in a single gorgeous moment -- when life was literally a dream...."  F. Scott Fitzgerald, from 'Early Success,' The Crack Up, October 1937
