Item # 690185
April 08, 1872
VIRGINIA EVENING CHRONICLE, Virginia [City], Nevada, April 8, 1872
* Rare Old West title
* Comstock Lode
* Gold & silver mining
* Volume 1 - Number 1 issue
Virginia City is one of America's largest historic landmarks. Some say Virginia City's rich gold and silver mines financed the Civil War.
Now rich in history, Virginia City and the Comstock Lode still maintain the flavor of the wild but very prosperous mining days, when Mark Twain roamed the streets and everybody wanted a piece of the "Richest Place on Earth."
This is the very first issue: volume 1, number 1.
Complete in 4 pages, various archival mends at the margins, a few creases, archivally rejoined at the spine. Somewhat fragile & should be handled carefully.
A volume I issue, four pages, great condition.
