Condición del libro: Very good
Edición: 1st Edition
Denver: Aurora of the Western World Publishing Company, . 159,pp., including illustrations (portraits and views) and a full-page map, "Governor Gilpin's Cosmopolitan R.R. Map of Behring Strait." Modern blue wrappers with a large portion of the original printed blue front wrapper affixed to the plain blue front wrapper. Ex-Library of Congress, with their ink stamp (noting this as a copyright copy) in the lower margin of the titlepage. Titlepage with closed tears, tape-repaired on the recto and verso of the leaf. Preface leaf with two small tape repairs in the foredge, final text leaf with a closed tape-repaired tear in the lower gutter, affecting a few letters of text on the recto of the leaf and a few index page numbers on the verso. Otherwise, internally very clean and very good overall. The first and apparently the only edition of this review of Colorado history, hymn to its accomplishments, booster of its limitless potential, and profile of its prominent citizens. The text gives a history of the state and of Denver, profiles important citizens, politicians, and business leaders (including governors Gilpin, Routt, Adams, and others), describes economic opportunities in the state, lists political officeholders, and more. The tone of the profiles is as fawning as any we have encountered in such works, and almost borders on self-parody. The illustrations show the men profiled, the natural beauty of the state, and significant public and private buildings. A similarly titled work was published in 1892, written by Anges Leonard Hill (see WYNAR 853) but that title seems unconnected to this one, and is more of a directory of prominent citizens of Denver and its suburbs. OCLC locates eight copies. WYNAR 136. OCLC 122780445, 13195954. N° de ref. de la librería 1400
