Description
The History of the Comstock Lode, first published in 1943, provided mining investors, engineers, and western historians with the first comprehensive, chronological history of mining operations on the Comstock. Of particular note is Smith's progressive record of the ways the mines were developed, the failures encountered, the bonanzas discovered, and the production records of the mines. In addition to the invaluable mining information, The History of the Comstock Lode includes the personal histories of the colorful men of the Comstock - "Old Virginny," the ill-fated Grosh brothers, John W. Mackay, Mark Twain, Dan De Quille, and Charles Howard Shinn, to mention a few. The book also contains many rare historic photographs of the mining district. With the addition of new material by Joseph V. Tingley, which brings the history of mining operations on the Comstock to the present, The History of the Comstock Lode will once again he enjoyed by scholars and students of mining history as well as western history buffs.
