For the first time since its publication in 1999, Colorado's best-selling book of all time, "the big brown leather book," is being improved. Over 200,000 copies of it and its brethren, Colorado 1870-2000 Vol. II, and Colorado 1870-2000 Revisited: The History Behind the Images have been sold. John Fielder's then & now project to stand where W.H. Jackson stood in the 19th century and make his photos all over again has influenced, stimulated, and entertained Coloradans like no other history book nor coffee table book. John Fielder has rescanned the original transparencies that he shot for the project, and digitally edited the original Jackson negatives, to reveal new details not visible in previous editions. From downtown Denver in the 1880s to the top of Mount of the Holy Cross, you will see as never before change for the better and worse, lots of change or none at all, as Fielder tracks from one end of the state to the other Jackson's early Colorado explorations. In addition, Fielder has included most of the commentary about the changes inherent in the repeat photographs by "Dr. Colorado," Thomas J. Noel, the state's best-known historian. This was the subject of Colorado 1870-2000 Revisited: The History Behind the Images, no longer in print, but whose text is back in print in this second edition of Colorado 1870-2000. The 156 photo pair are the same magnificent size as before, but now with edifying writing about the change or lack thereof inherent in the comparison photographs.
