Summer Etchings in Colorado.

NY: G. P. Putnam's Sons, 1873. 96pp, illus. Full leather with gilt cover and spine title, AEG. Extremities rubbed, ownerÕs inscription on the ffep, one of those ghastly personal blind stamps to the title page, else very good. Born in Ireland, died in France, and best known for her etchings of New York, Eliza Greatorex spent the summer of 1873 at Fountain Colony, the name of the settlement founded by William J. Palmer that became Colorado Springs. The product of that visit was this attractive book in which she described her experiences and illustrated them with her etchings (here reproduced by lithography). In her day Greatorex was a well-known illustrator, the first woman elected to the National Academy of Art. Her visit made her one of the first professional artists in Colorado. Item #22163
