THE OFFICIAL MANUAL OF THE CRIPPLE CREEK DISTRICT, COLORADO, U.S.A., 1900

(Cripple Creek, Colorado)  THE OFFICIAL MANUAL OF THE CRIPPLE CREEK DISTRICT, COLORADO, U.S.A., published by Fred Hills, E.M., Colorado Springs, Colorado, 1900, first edition.  Book is in its original red cloth binding with gold embossing on cover and spine; 495 pages.   Enamel-coated pages; maps and halftone illustrations.  This book was originally intended to be the ultimate in stock broker's handbooks, providing details of several hundred operating and producing mines and mining companies in the Cripple Creek Gold Mining District.  T.A. Rickard, State Geologist of Colorado, wrote an article, "The Cripple Creek District: Its Past and Future," for the book; as well as George Rex Buckman, "Cripple Creek from the Standpoint of Statistics."  Articles are accompanied by illustrations.  Nearly all of the mining companies have details such as organization, capitalization, property, development, officers, and so on, along with a plat of mining claims.  The book was originally published with a fold-out map of the Cripple Creek District, by Fred Hills, and copyrighted 1900.  This copy is missing the original map; however, another original map -- published for William A. Otis & Company -- accompanies this volume.  The Otis map, published in May 1896, is five-color, larger than the original Hills' map -- 23 inches wide by 34 inches in length -- and more detailed (showing mining claims, towns, railroads, topography, etc.).  Condition of book: very good, with some binding reinforcement; light soiling; some sunning to spine; bumped corners and a bit of cloth fraying.  Condition of map: good plus to very good; damp-staining in upper left-hand area of map; weakness in spots; fraying along edges.  Book stated to be Volume 1; however, Hills did not publish another volume.  Hills did, though, publish a small stock broker's handbook in 1902.
