[Photo Album]: Longs Peak Quad[rangle], Colorado. 1913
Colorado: 1913. Near Fine. Softcover. Small oblong octavo. Approximately 7" x 5.5". Leather over flexible card wrappers. Label on front wrap. R.R. Monbeck, U.S. Geological Survey, Washington, D.C." inside front cover, and "Longs Peak Quad" on front fly, both in white album ink. 84 sepia-toned gelatin sliver photographs measuring between 4.5" x 2.75" and 5.5" x 3.5", mostly one or two to the page, most very neatly captioned in white album ink. A couple of newspaper clippings tipped in. Modest edge wear to the album, front hinge cracked, else very good; images are near fine. A subject specific album taken by a member of a U.S. Geological Survey crew working mostly in the northern Front Range of the Rocky Mountains in the Rocky Mountain National Park Wilderness for several months starting in June 1913. Set entirely in Colorado, among the other locations mentioned are Ousel Lake, Thunder Lake, Wild Basin, North St. Vrain, Tubleson Lake, Buchanan Pass, Ward, Saw Tooth, Albion Reservoir, Arapaho Peak, and many others. While most of the images are of the crew at work and the locations that they were surveying, there are a modest number of pictures of local people they visited with, including a few of young women, including one of Vesta Schaedla, the University of Colorado woman's tennis champion, who must have visited the camp. An exceptionally well-composed and very carefully captioned album. A superior example of this type of album.
