Washington, D.C.: Government Printing Office, 1883. Quarto. xiv, 451 pages, three maps (two large folding), It is from this book we learn that the miners in the Gold Hill District created their own political sub-parties to protect their interest and wrote there would be no banking schemes (which in past cases and caused major frauds on miners in the west). It was not unusual in the long section on the Gold Hill area (132-180) for miners to stake claims and move stakes for a slightly better advantage. The lawlessness and the opportunity for the larger concerns to move in and take control became the rule. Bound in full calf, red and black contrasting spine labels gilt, joints a bit tender, tap to foot of spine, corners worn, front blank nearly detached, internally clean.
