Reno: Nevada Newsletter Publishing Co., 1923. First edition. Original printed wrappers, 295pp., with a folding map "showing counties and mining districts." Comprehensive: "As a compilation of Nevada Mining History, 'Lincoln' has stood the test of time....No Nevada book collection warrants the name without a 'Lincoln'; no mining researcher can fail to be without it (sic). The first edition is very scarce (Paher, 1980, 1143)." This copy belonged to geologist and mining engineer R.W. Prince, his name on the front, the book and the map heavily annotated. Prince contributed "Bibliography of Geologic Maps of Nevada Areas" to the University of Nevada Bulletin (Geology and Mining Series) for December, 1945. Rear wrapper lacking, front wrapper stained and worn with much fingering - this copy was extensively used in the field. A Good, sound copy.
