Fort Thornburgh, Utah.
(Military)
Washington: U.S. House of Representatives, 1882. 47th Congress, 1st Session, House of Representatives, Ex. Doc. No. 90. 3pp, 27 folding sheets of architectural plans. Removed from the Serial Set and bound in cloth. Some edge chipping to the text and fold separations on the sheets, overall very good. The history of Fort Thornburgh began with the removal of the Ute Indians in Colorado to Utah following the hostilities of 1879. Secretary of War Robert T. Lincoln decided to construct a fort to hold the Utes on the reservation and to quiet any potential hostilities between the Indians and the white population. A final site for the site was selected in the spring of 1882 about 6.5 miles northwest of present day Vernal, Utah. Secretary of War Lincoln proposed an elaborate $84,000 fort consisting of thirty-two brick and frame buildings to house two companies of cavalry and two of infantry. This document is the proposal with elevations, sections, foundation plans, and floor plans for the major buildings, the largest 22 by 18 inches, most smaller. Plans include the post headquarters, officers' quarters, guard house, stables, and many more. The active army seems to have been unimpressed by the proposal. Gen. W. T. Sherman commented in his letter of transmittal, "The necessity for this post was forced on the War Department by the removal of the Utes from Colorado to Utah, but as this is their last ditch, the present Fort Thornburgh will have some chance of permanency. At all events, troops must be maintained there or thereabouts, and cannot exist without shelter." Sherman was wrong about permanency. Congress appropriated but $1,500 for the fort in 1883 and what there was of Fort Thornburgh was officially abandoned sometime during the winter of 1883 or spring of 1884. What remains is this interesting presentation of military architecture never realized.

(Travel).
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1883. xiv, 265-502pp, illus, 8 folding maps bound in, folding map in rear pocket, errata slip, plus unpaginated advertising front and back. Original printed boards, some soil to edges, else very good. A detailed guide to the places and routes along America's railroads; although, the railroad map of the United States in the back pocket clearly shows that the south and west are relatively under served compared to the north and east. Only one transcontinental route is shown on the map, but the text makes reference to the recently completed Texas Pacific route. There is much of interest, including a grand tour to the Rocky Mountains on the Union Pacific for $38 round trip.

A History: Greeley and the Union Colony of Colorado.
Boyd, David
Greeley, CO: The Greeley Tribune Press, 1890. 448pp, illus, errata slip. Original boards. Light scraping to boards, owner's bookplate, else near fine. Laid in is a clipped signature of David Boyd and a letter of transmittal from his son, a gravure image of Boyd, and a couple of more or less relevant newspaper clippings. The Union Colony of Colorado (also called the Greeley Colony and The Union Temperance Colony) was a joint stock company formed to promote agricultural settlement in the South Platte River valley in the Colorado Territory. Organized in October 1869 by Nathan Meeker in order to establish a religiously-oriented utopian community of "high moral standards," the colony was founded the following year at present-day Greeley, Colorado, which was established by the colony in March 1870. It was financed and promoted by New York Tribune editor Horace Greeley, a prominent advocate of settlement of the American West. The colony greatly advanced homesteading and irrigation usage in northern Colorado, demonstrating the viability of cultivation at a time when agriculture was emerging as a rival of mining as the basis for the territorial economy. The company eventually dissolved (although Greeley remained dry until 1972) and the town became a routinely prosperous agricultural town. This is a detailed history of the experiment by one of the participants. Herd 296, Henkle 1220.

NY: Grosset & Dunlap, 1910. The George Duran reprint edition. [iv], frontis, 342pp. Internal corners bumped, dust jacket soiled and chipped (more on that later), dusty on top, overall very good. Ramon Adams - who is notoriously stingy with his praise - calls this “an excellent piece of western Americana.” It contains a chapter on Clay Allison, another about stagecoach robberies by Dunc Blackburn, and still others on shotgun messengers, horse thieves, and the robbing of the Southern Pacific. It is very rare to find a dust jacket this old, and it is easy to see why. The jacket is mostly white with text on the cover, while the cloth covered boards are blood red with a colorful thrilling scene of a stage robbery. The jacket is soiled and worn, but it has done its job well since the cover illustration is bright. 6 Guns. 284.

Along the way he traveled from Lake Superior to the Rocky Mountains where he hung out with the Indian, shot things, and observed the hardship and beauty of life on the prairie all of which he recorded here.

The route of the Northern Pacific RR is clearly marked crossing the continent, and the large size allows much detail. Boundaries are hand colored.

The Provisional Government of Nebraska Territory and The Journals of William Walker, Provisional Governor of Nebraska Territory.
Connelley, William E., ed.
Lincoln, NE: The Nebraska State Historical Society, 1899. ix, 423pp, illus. Original boards. External staining probably mildew, internally clean. Although he had little Indian blood, William Walker (1800-1874) was a member of the Wyandot tribe and devoted much of his life to the interests of his people. He was well educated and an ardent Democrat. In 1853 he was elected provisional governor of Nebraska Territory, at the time a region embracing both Kansas and Nebraska. He was a slave owner and he strongly opposed the abolition movement, but also opposed secession. This book, a special publication of the Nebraska State Historical Society, includes a biography of Walker, documents relating to the territory, and Walker's journals from 1845 until 1854, well annotated. Larned says of it,"Contains many valuable documents. It furnishes an invaluable history of the beginnings of government in the territory." Larned Literature of American History 2025.

Tour from the City of New-York to Detriot in the Michigan Territory Made Between the 2nd of May and the 22nd of September, 1818.
Darby, William
NY: Kirk & Mercein, 1819. 228pp, lxiii, index, 3 folding maps (only one in some copies). Rebound in quarter leather, moderate foxing, else very good. In a series of letters, William Darby (1775-1854), who describes himself as a member of the New-York Historical Society, chronicles his journey up the Hudson, across New York to Ogdensburg and Sackett's Harbor (on Lake Ontario), and on to Buffalo and Detroit. Along the way, he spends time in Rhinebeck, Utica, Geneva, Niagara Falls, and other points of scenic or economic interest. He also discusses the St. Lawrence River and its commercial traffic at length, analyzing development on both shores and comparing the United States's and Canada's growth. Darby made the trip across Lake Erie from Buffalo to Detroit on the schooner Zephyr, stopping at such towns as Dunkirk, Cleveland, and Sandusky. His return trip to New York took him back along the American shore of Lake Erie to Buffalo and Albany (by way of Auburn, the Finger Lakes, and Schenectady). Appended to these letters are "general remarks" (which include excerpts of a speech by Governor Clinton to the New York State Legislature), a description of Ballston Spa, and a letter Darby received about the not-yet-opened Erie Canal. Darby tells us primarily about the geology and natural features of the areas he visits as well as their current and future economic prospects. He provides some demographic information and occasionally mentions local accommodations with brief remarks upon remarkable events and characters giving interest to different places. Darby was a peripatetic traveler and prolific writer; a geographer who participated in surveys of the United States boundaries with both Texas and Canada. Howes D66.

Derby was a Topographical Engineer and a veteran of the Mexican War who was stationed in California during the later years of the gold rush. He began writing humorous pieces for local papers under the pen name John Phoenix and Squibob. His frontier satire and burlesques were immensely popular in his time, and he has been compared to Mark Twain and James Thurber. His potential was cut short by a tragically early death, and he is little known today. Too bad, there's some very funny stuff here. This is an excellent selection of work taken from his two published books.

The Great Lakes or Inland Seas of America...
Disturnell, J.
New York: Charles Scribner, 1863. 192pp, illus, folding map. Original boards, some rubbing and internal browning. The binding is tight and the folding map crisp. The subtitle reads in its entirety (deep breath), "Embracing a full description of Lakes Superior, Huron, Michigan, Erie, and Ontario; Rivers St. Mary, St. Clair, Detroit, Niagara, and St. Lawrence, Lake Winnipeg, etc.: together with the commerce of the lakes, and trips through the lakes: giving a description of cities, towns, etc. forming altogether a complete guide for the pleasure traveler and emigrant." A tall order, to be sure, but this little book does a pretty good job of providing information on the lakes and surrounding features. The large folding map shows (13.5 x 25 inches) much of the northeastern U.S. and upper Midwest, and the final twenty-nine pages of advertising offers many options for transportation and lodging.

James Boys and their Daring Deeds.
Edgar, James
Baltimore: I. & M. Ottenheimer, Publishers, 1911. frontis, 182pp, [8, advts]. Pictorial wraps. Pages browned and brittle, small chips from front wrap. One of many dime novels that were issued on the James gang. Right off let's establish that this pulp outlaw book is pretty much worthless as far as historic content is concerned. Ramon Adams deals with several in his bibliography Six Guns and Saddle Leather using phrases like, "hack writer", "most unreliable", "sensational, but historically worthless", and "exaggerated sensationalism." Further, we will spare you the revisionist deconstruction of the texts as symbolic of the clash of changing cultures on the frontier and the struggle of oppressed classes blah, blah, blah. So what's left? Well, you just gotta love it as an object. The cover art is thrilling, there are equally dramatic illustrations inside, and the condition is just short of incredible. It was printed on the cheapest paper, bound with the flimsiest materials, and sold to consumers who gave little thought to its survival. This one is further distinguished because the author was brave enough to put his name to it (although Adams gets it wrong, listing it as Edgar James not James Edgar as it appears on the title page. (I don't trust people with two first names.) 6 Guns 1140.
