First edition of an early and significant Colorado imprint. Eberstadt 135:267 (offering the imprint at $850 in 1954): “Among connoisseurs of Rocky Mountain lore, this work has long been esteemed as one of the most-to-be-desired books printed in the Territory. As the pioneer history of the region, it ranks historically as one of the veritable nuggets of western literature, affording a contemporary record of the earliest emigration and the gold ‘strikes’; of the beginnings of their duels, murders, and executions; the disasters by flood and fire; the Indian outrages and wars that led to the Chivington massacre; etc.” Graff 4617. Howes W303: “Rarest of Colorado local histories; first of this city.” Jones, Adventures in Americana 295: “Excessively rare.” McMurtrie, Early Printing in Colorado 73. Streeter Sale 2172: “The first history of Denver and one of the rarest Colorado local histories.” No copies noted in all of the Morrison guides; the only copy we find at auction in “recent” years was the Streeter copy in 1970. See our web site for a scan of the title-page. Early Colorado imprint, pioneer history, directory. This piece has a great deal of appeal. With it we include a copy of the facsimile reprint.
