Willing, Thomson, 1860-1898 : [Drawings for The Old Santa Fe Trail], ca. 1890-1897
- Nineteen pen and ink drawings on board of varying sizes, largely unsigned with the exception of one drawing signed "C. F. Tiedemann 93," and another initialed "CFT." Fourteen of the drawings can be found as tail pieces and initials within Henry Inman's The Old Santa Fe Trail (New York: The Macmillan Company, 1897), a work that charts the illustrious history of the Santa Fe Trail, a nineteenth century transportation route that connected Franklin, Missouri with Santa Fe, New Mexico. These works offer insight into nineteenth century illustration, transportation, as well as the history and cultural appeal of the American West.
