Denver: Pierson & Gardner, 1884. 8vo, original gray cloth, backstrip gilt-lettered. 319 pp. Numerous text illustrations by Eugene Field. Covers rubbed and somewhat bubbled, occasional staining; a very good copy of a book that is rarely seen in better condition. First Edition. A lively account of the early days in Colorado, compiled by a Denver newspaperwoman who decided to get down on paper the yarns and recollections of the pioneers while they were still around to recount them. Her colleague Eugene Field contributed his drawings anonymously, and well he might. A revised and enlarged edition appeared in 1915. [Bradford 2292 (second ed.). Howes H-469. Wymar & Depp 132. Curiously overlooked by Adams.] (Item Id: 6040)
