About This Item

Unknown: Unknown. Good. Map printed in green on laid paper. Light creasing and wear along edges. A watermark indicates "Wausau Laid" paper, but no other authorship. An uncommon map, of unknown origin & date, covering Arizona and parts of California, Nevada, Utah and New Mexico, detailing the lost mines in each area. It's possible this map was based on the maps & writings of John T. Mitchell in "Desert Magazine," in the 1930s & later in the '50s. His books on lost mines of the Southwest were reprinted in 1970 by Rio Grande Press, which may coincide with the printing of this map. Alternatively, inferring from the quality of laid paper used, it's also possible this map was a placemat published by a small restaurant chain, also during the 1960s or '70s. Its mystery adds to its allure as a well-illustrated document and a unique treasure. ; 21" - 17" tall .
