N.D. Original printed wraps, 9 pages, Township Plat opposite title page, two fold lines, else a very good copy. According to the author, the first edition was published in 1870 and the revised edition was 1882. Contains the rules and requirements for homesteading in Colorado. There's no date on this third edition. Eberstadt 1955, had the 1882 edition with a different title. No other auction records. I found a record of the 6th revised edition which was printed in 1887, so this edition is between 1882 and 1887. View more info
