"William Wright (18291898) , better known by the pen name Dan DeQuille or Dan De Quille, was an American author, journalist, and humorist. He was best known for his written accounts of the people, events, and silver mining operations on the Comstock Lode at Virginia City, Nevada.DeQuille was on the staff of the (Virginia City) Territorial Enterprise for over thirty years, and his writings were also printed in other publications throughout the country and abroad. Highly regarded for his knowledge of silver mining techniques and his ability to explain them in simple terms, he was also appreciated for his humor, similar in style to that of his associate and friend Mark Twain, and of a type very popular in the United States at that time, now referred to as the Sagebrush School literary genre." "In 1871, Irish-Americans John William Mackay, James Graham Fair, James Clair Flood and William S. O'Brien, organized the Consolidated Virginia Silver Mine near Virginia City, Nevada, from a number of smaller claims on the Comstock Lode and later added the nearby California mine. Mackay and Fair had the mining knowledge and Flood and O'Brien raised the money. The purchase price of the claims, later to become fabulously a source of wealth, was about $100,000. The original stock issue was 10,700 shares, selling for between $4 and $5 a share. In 1873 the "big bonanza" was uncovered and San Francisco and the entire mining world were hurtled into a fever of excitement. The first stock issue was converted into two issues of 108,000 shares each, and by the middle of 1875 the speculative value of the two mines were close to $1,000,000,000. Shares went as high as $710.". Bookseller Inventory # A32412

Original cloth binding with an undulating spine, remaining intact and attractive with minor shelfwear. Contains 92 black-and-white illustrations. Minor foxing and soiling scattered lightly throughout text, and a few pages with minor paper defects. Paher 1179: "De Quille has written the greatest of all the Comstock books and probably the best single book on any Western mining camp. It is source material complete with introduction by Mark Twain, who roomed and shared offices with Dan in 1862." H.H. Bancroft says of this work: "A curious medley of historical facts and humorous phases of society in connection with a mining excitement that brought about, in a measure, the flush times of El Dorado, and raised Nevada from a country appendage to a state. It is full of stirring incidents and anecdotes, and delights in rough characters and dialoges." -Cowan. Johnson says of it in his "Bibliography of Mark Twain": "One-page Introductory is by Mark Twain. This book is very desirable to the admirer of Twain, as it was written by a fellow worker on the Virginia City Enterprise, of Nevada, who figured as one of the characters of Roughing It, and is a most readable supplement and commentary on same." Newbegin's bookstore description affixed by one corner to the front endpaper. First edition. Size: Octavo (8vo). Bookseller Inventory # 017691
