A History of the Life and Voyages of Christopher Columbus. Washington Irving. London: John Murray, MDCCCXXVIII (1828).

Description:
4 vols., 473 & 490 & 413 & 489 p. Two large folding maps in Vol. I are complete and have no tears, losses or other damage but have some foxing. Bound in old leather with gilt titles and decoration on spines. Marbled endpapers. Page edges speckled. Foxing on preliminary and final blanks but not in text. The first London issue, the same year as New York. Tightly bound but covers could use some polish. So tightly bound I suspect it was never read. Bookseller Fred Rosenstock's pencil note "Early Edition. Very Scarce. 4 vols." on preliminary blank of Vol. l. Maps titled: Chart Shewing (sic) the Tracks Across the North Atlantic Ocean of Don Christopher Columbus. Chart of the West Indies With the adjacent Coast of South America showing the tracks of Don Christopher Columbus.

Brains and Money vs. Resources Illustrated and embellished with views of one of the most resourceful yet undeveloped sections of the Rocky Mountain region ........ Isaac Van Horn. Self-published by Isaac Van Horn & Co. Bankers - Boston and Laramie.

Description:
Quarto cloth with gilt titles. Probably 1901,140 p. Very good with no marks except ink name "James H. Crawford" who was a prominent rancher and settler in northwest Colorado. Apparently a promotional book for mining and other investment ventures in northwest Colorado and into Laramie, Wyoming. Excellent photos, map, a contract for investing. Roll the dice in the Laramie, Hahns Peak & Pacific Railway. Or smelting, lumber, power & irrigation, copper, town company, bank, hotel even publishing. Yes, there was some railroad building and mining but this fell to the side of a scam. The New York Times reported in 1913 that Mr. Van Horn petitioned for bankruptcy in Concord, NH, with assets of $100 and liabilities exceeding $778,000. Fascinating.

A beautiful tribute to all the parties involved.
