Description:

In original tan (?) printed wrappers. Octavo, i-[xvi], 192, xvii-lvi pp. plus 28 maps, many folding, and one full page illustration of a blow pipe. From the preface, "The purpose has been to give in a succinct form and with moderation of statement a description of each mining district in Washington and in Southern British Columbia, following a general description of each district with a description of each mine and the more important prospects in that district." and, concerning the maps, "But it can be said without fear of contradiction that this volume contains a more complete set of detailed maps than has yet been published and that the large map contains a mass of valuable information which has never yet reached the public". A scarce publication printed on fragile newsprint which is seldom found intact. *** Condition: Wrappers toned and cover printing somewhat faded, some small brownish staining to front cover; lower right corner chipped and two other corners with repaired chips (archival tissue on verso). Inkstamp initials on front cover and a couple preliminary pages; also, penciled name at top of front cover and following page. Abrasion with minor loss at spine ends. Binding intact with covers still attached. Interior clean with toning to edges but virtually no foxing. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description FBC LTD, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Mining in the Pacific Northwest: A Complete Review of the Mineral Resources of Washington and British Columbia, With Maps It is a trite, but by no means true, saying that mining is a gamble. It is only a gamble when a man unfamiliar with the business buys property he has never seen or of which he does not know the value. It is not a gamble if entered upon on business principles, with a full knowledge of what is being bought, obtained either by personal inspection or through the report. Of a reliable mining engineer. There is no more reason why a man should buy a pig in a poke in the mining business than in any other business. If he does so and finds that he has not bought a pig but some other animal, he must not blame the mining business, but his own unbusinesslike manner of engaging in it.
