3 Sutro, Adolph, CLOSING ARGUMENT OF ADOLPH SUTRO ON THE BILL BEFORE CONGRESS TO AID THE SUTRO TUNNEL, DELIVERED BEFORE THE COMMITTEE ON MINES AND MINING OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, MONDAY, APRIL 22, 1872.
Washington: McGill & Witherow, Printers and Stereotypers, 1873. First edition. Original blue cloth with gilt bands, gilt titling  Corners bumped and worn, former owner's interesting bookplate on front paste down...it is in Latin, front hinge cracked, but overall a very good copy of the hard to find cloth binding copy of the first edition with the large folding map. Map is in fine condition. 
Large folding color lithograph map laid in, index. Paher, Nevada: An Annotated Bibliography,1923. Paher notes 96 pp. but I believe he is wrong. This book is complete and I have a second copy with 92 pages and it is complete. This edition does not contain the Report of the Committee on Mines and Mining found in the copy in wraps. As with other Sutro items, this was bound in both green cloth and blue cloth with the distinctive Sutro "logo" of the miner with a pick on the front cover. As far as I know, this is found in both blue and green and as others are sometimes also in red, this could be too, but have never seen it in red. Map has both topographical and sectional depictions of the Sutro Tunnel.
