Item # 585546
March 9, 1878
FRANK LESLIE'S ILLUSTRATED, New York, March 9, 1878
* Comstock Lode prints
* Silver mining
* Virginia City, Nevada
Certainly the prime prints within this issue are those related to the silver mining rush in Virginia City, home of the "Comstock Lode". Included is a print of: "Descending the Shaft of the Consolidated Virginia Silver Mine, in Virginia City" with a related article, plus a terrific full page print: "The Party Witnessing Silver Miners 'Picking' Ore in the Consolidated Virginia Silver Mine, at Virginia City Nevada", plus two half page prints of: "Scenes & Incidents of Underground Life in the Consolidated Virginia Silver Mine, in Virginia City, Nevada". There are other unrelated prints within this issue but the pale in comparison to the mining prints.
Complete in 16 pages, a bit irregular & partially loose at the spine, otherwise very nice, clean condition.
