Book Description Denver. 1874., 1874. 158pp. plus [5]pp. advertisements and fourteen mounted photographs. Original brown cloth, stamped in blind and gilt. Contemporary ownership inscription on front pastedown, dated 1880 in Colorado. Some scattered light tanning in text, else clean. Eight contemporary botanical specimens mounted on blank pages throughout text; some minor offsetting from specimens. First photographic leaf loose. All the photographs are bright and clean and show rich tonality. Near fine. Published to promote tourism, this work contains images of Central City, Boulder Canyon, Clear Creek Canyon, Grand Crater, Rainbow Falls (Manitou), Monument Park, and more. All the photographs are by Collier of Denver. This work is usually found with from four to eight mounted photographs, although this copy has the rare full complement of fourteen. Unlike many Colorado pieces, the scenes are all over the state and not concentrated around Colorado Springs. All the photographs show landscape scenes. This copy is inscribed to Henry B. Atherton at Glen Eyrie, 1880, by "a friend in Colorado." Atherton was likely a New Hampshire attorney and Civil War veteran who had been wounded in the Peninsular campaign. Glen Eyrie, a tudor-style mansion near Colorado Springs, was built during the 1870s by William Jackson Palmer, a retired Civil War general who made a fortune in western railroads. A lovely work with the rare full complement of photos and an interesting provenance. MARGOLIS, TO DELIGHT THE EYE 13 (with 10 photos). Seller Inventory # WRCAM 2462
