1878 THE HOT SPRINGS OF ARKANSAS Author: CLEEF, A. Van Title: The Hot Springs of Arkansas. Publisher: New York: Harper & Brothers, 1878. Notes: An 18 page enlightening and comprehensive account on the history of early Hot Springs, Arkansas. This narrative deals with the contemporary developmental stages of the now famous tourist location, published the Hot Springs Mountain Reservation of Arkansas, 33 years before the National Park was established. The author presents detail on the water's chemical make-up and its healing properties over skin and blood conditions and rheumatism; on early settlements; and on specific landmarks including the Garland county jail, Grand Central Hotel, Big Iron boat-house and the observatory. With yet more fascinating detail on the surrounding country, shanty villages, game hunting, the abundance of quartz and crystal, and on ancient Indian arrowheads found. Federal protection of the thermal waters was granted in 1832, giving Hot Springs the honor of being the first unofficial "National Park" with such government protection. Hot Springs National Park was formally created in 1911. Condition: Complete article removed from within original Harper's Monthly Magazine. Original wrapers-bound removed and missing. Last page loose from text block. Now enclosed in a archival crystal-clear magazine slip.
