Product Description


New Mexico Mines and Minerals

by Fayette Alexander Jones

1904 World Fair Edition 375 Pages

This is a very very rare publication. If you can find a copy it normally runs $400 to $500 per copy. This is probably one of the most complete publications on the mines of New Mexico written by Fayette Jones, who at the time visited all of the districts that are in this book. Lots of information and pictures of the district that you won't find anywhere else.
