"Fearful fights of American hunters with savage Indians, Mexican rancheros, and beast of prey. Giving truthful accounts of the awful fate of hundreds of overland emigrants amid the snowdrifts of the Truckee Peaks, from whence half-frozen men, women and children were carried over slippery cliffs, lashed to the backs of their gallant rescuers." So reads the original tag line for the book. A little fiction and a little nonfiction, this book tells terrifying tales of wonder while...

Groundbreaking science fiction book printed as a collection of four previously-printed short stories in magazine form. Concerns a transportation tube through the planet from New York to Australia, which gives its first passenger an experience in free fall but suffers from melting at the Earth's core and must be abandoned. Has been influential with regard to many works to come later, though it is an under-appreciated gem in its own right.

A selection of 35 black and white photographs of various Colorado scenic landmarks, published by the H.H. Tammen Company in Denver. Some of these have appeared in other texts, some are new, but all are classic views of the Centennial State. The document as a whole has been scanned at 1200 DPI, then downconverted for this posting, as the original files were too large to compile. For the original 1200 DPI TIFF files, please contact the Patterson Collection directly.

An intriguing souvenir book provided by The Colorado News Company, and sold to passengers through Clear Creek Canyon, riding what came to be called The Loop. As such, there are several pictures of The Loop itself, from varying angles, as well as photographs of various other portions of the railway, which was converted to passenger use once the silver market crashed. All photography - no paintings, thus each image is in black and white.

Views after paintings by Charles H. Harmon are very good and display an interesting mix from Colorado and Utah. For some reason, some booksellers think this includes California. It does not, and it shouldn't! David H. Moffat was president of a large Denver bank and promoter of a direct Denver to Salt Lake line, which would later become the famous Moffat Line. The route this line took was known as The Moffat Road, and went directly over the Continental Divide at some of the most spectacular...

Prehistoric Villages, Castles and Towers of Southwestern Colorado is a study from 1919 regarding the newly-discovered ancient works in the region. While we're familiar with much of this work now, there are also items included that have since been looted, covered over, or lost, making this a valuable look at the cultural history of the region.
