About This Item

Denver: Golden Bell Press. Very Good+. 1980. Softcover. Stated third printing, June 1980. A history of the Colorado mountain town famous for its pure white Yule Creek marble, which was used in numerous buildings and statues in the United States. The authors tell of the rowdy history of the town and the rigorous effort to quarry the stone and transport it so it could be shaped into its final forms, which include the Lincoln Memorial and the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, both in the Washington area. With several black & white photos and a couple of sketch maps of the area. --- In white wraps with black & white photo of operations in the town on front panel. --- A very nice copy: tightly-bound and sturdy but with minor rubbing to covers and a front cover crease.; Octavo - 8 to 9 in. tall; viii, 229 pages .
