    Rare Colorado Mining Map

    Emil B. Fischer. Map of Red Mountain and the Mining Region of San Juan, Ouray, San Miguel and Delores Counties, Colorado, U.S.A. Chicago: Rand, McNally and Company, 1891. Folding pocket map measuring approximately 38" x 34" overall, folded into printed paper wrappers to an overall size of 3.5" x 8". Colored borders. 1" to the mile scale. Wrappers chipped along the edges with some areas of small loss; map with short splits in the folds and some closed tears along the edges, else very good.

    Emil B. Fischer apparently produced six detailed maps of the San Juan area between 1883 and 1898. The inset plats on this example focus on the mining locales of Newman Hill at Rico, the Red Mountain Area north of Silverton, and Silver Lake in Arrastra Basin, east of Silverton. The map shows the locations of hundreds of the San Juan region's named mines and placers and may constitute a comprehensive compilation.
