CLOSING ARGUMENT OF ADOLPH SUTRO, ON THE BILL BEFORE CONGRESS TO AID THE SUTRO TUNNEL, DELIVERED BEFORE THE COMMITTEE ON MINES AND MINING OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, MONDAY, APRIL 22, 1872. Washington, D. C.

First edition. Paher says this work is "perhaps the most common of the Sutro items." Nevertheless, excepting his THE MINERAL RESOURCES OF THE UNITED STATES ... WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE COMSTOCK LODE AND THE SUTRO TUNNEL, IN NEVADA (1868) it is Sutro's most substantial, important work. This "regular" issue was issued without the folded map included in the issue prepared for investors, but it includes the favorable "Report of the Committee on Mines and Mining," pp. 91-96, not included in the "investor" issue. Paher 1923. A bright, very good copy. (#166339).
