Collection consists of photographic portraits; correspondence; newspaper and magazine tear-sheets and clippings, some in scrapbooks;
newletters; publication contracts and agreements; collected chromolithographs and colored engravings (many by Mary E. Eaton);
and watercolor, oil color, and scratchboard illustrations by Hottes, which form the bulk of the collection. Many of the illustrations
by Hottes were for a book on California plants which he never published, because of the prohibitive cost of color printing
at the time.
