THE GOLD MINES OF GILPIN COUNTY, COLORADO

HISTORICAL, DESCRIPTIVE AND STATISTICAL

SAMUEL CUSHMAN and J. P. WATERMAN

CENTRAL CITY: Register Steam Printing House, 1876

Original printed cream-colored wrappers; 136 pages.

"... Gilpin county, although the smallest county in the Centennial State [1876], is universally conceded to contain a larger number of rich gold mines than can be found elsewhere within equal limits.  As it is the spot where the History of Colorado began; as it is the place from which at least five-eighths of the bullion product of the Territory has been obtained, and as it has been the radiating point from which other mining counties, and even mining Territories have been peopled, it is thought deserving of a special history.

It is the aim of the Publishers to give a brief and succinct account of the gold business of this county, from the discovery of gold in 1859, to the present time; to recall the early successes, showing the great available wealth of the lodes and gulches; to trace the brilliant beginning and disastrous ending of the speculative period; and to call especial attention to the gradual revival, the constantly increasing success and bright prospects of the business, under more favorable circumstances, and under more skilled, economical and experienced management."  Page 3
