About This Item

Buena Vista, CO: Times Book and Job Rooms, 1882. Small 8vo (6 1/2 x 5 inches). [5], 6-37, [38-40] pp., including advertisements. Original printed wrappers; quarter morocco slipcase. Some soiling, a few discreet paper repairs. FIRST EDITION of this scarce pamphlet on Buena Vista, published three years after it was founded. "The south-western portion of Colorado ten years ago was a howling wilderness, through which the red man and wild animals roamed almost unrestrained... To-day Leadville boasts of 14,000 population" (p. [5]). This promotional brochure has sections on the social advantages of the area, the city government and resources, and details local businesses, most of whom advertise on the endleaves. For the section on Cottonwood, there is a description of the hot springs and mines, as well as the New York and Toronto Company and the El Dorado Company. Other sections cover Mount Princeton and La Plata District.

The text is signed in print at end by A. Vinette, who is described on p. 32 as the owner, with A. D. Butler, of the first extension of the Missouri Gulch called the Falcon. No copies are recorded at auction in at least the past fifty years. Not in Graff, Sabin. Howes B-937; Wynar 3470.
