Boston: Rockwell and Rollins, [ca. 1860s]. pp. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers stained, front wrapper and first text leaf with small chip in foredge. Small tear in lower edge throughout. Good. A rare prospectus for the Silver Chamber Mining Co., formed for the purpose of "holding, working, purchasing and selling such mines, mills and other property as may be fixed upon." Though not specifying where those lands might be (presumably in western silver lands, such as Nevada or Arizona), this text is rather specific as to the capitalization of the company ($300,000), the number of shares (3,000), the manner in which the company would be run. Its officers and trustees included John W. Bigelow, Joshua R. Bigelow, Charles Allen, Elisha Atkins, Henry H. Atkins, and Theodore Metcalf. It is unknown whether the company ever actually operated any western mines, but this volume is good evidence of the intense Eastern interest in Western mining ventures. OCLC locates only a single copy, at the Massachusetts Historical Society (which holds the Atkins family papers). OCLC 646166446. Bookseller Inventory # 1110
