Chicago: Tribune Steam Book and Job Printing Office, 1861. Original printed salmon wrappers [dusted], stitched, two foldouts frontis: an enormous Transverse Section of the mines; and a large Geological Diagram. 16 clean pages. Closed tear to one map from careless opening, repaired on verso with archival tape. Very Good.
A rare item. OCLC records an 1858 Report of this Company's Board of Directors, but without folding diagrams. The Company's mines were located in Michigan; John H. Gatiss, whose report is included here, was Superintendent of the Mines. All the officers and directors were from Chicago, except for Gatiss, whose residence is listed as Eagle River, Michigan. The by-laws required that one Director be a resident of Michigan.
