DATES OF LOCATION AND RECORD OF EACH CLAIM REPRESENTED ON THE MAP OF BODIE MINING DISTRICT[,] MONO COUNTY, CAL. SURVEYED AND COMPILED BY C. L. ANDERSON, C. E. ILLUSTRATED AND PUBLISHED BY EDWARD EYSEN. SAN FRANCISCO, CAL. SEPTEMBER, 1880 [cover title]. [San Francisco: Crowe & Cooke, Engravers and Printers, 22 Montgomery Street], 1880. 21.8x14.7 cm, pp. [1-11] [12: blank] (not paginated), self wrappers, sewn. First edition. The rare index to Bodie mining claims prepared to accompany an equally rare large-scale map, "Map of Bodie Mining District, Mono Co. California. Surveyed and Compiled by C. L. Anderson. Illustrated and Published by Edward Eysen, 1880," 44x61 inches, lithographed by M. Schmidt & Co., for sale by Payot, Upham & Co. The map and index were published at the height of the Bodie boom, when the town had a population of perhaps 10,000 and forty to fifty active mines and ten mills. CU-B has a photocopy of the map; the Library of Congress has (had?) the original. No libraries appear to have the index. Not in Cowan (1933) or Rocq (1970). See Phillips, p. 146 (map). Faint old vertical crease where folded for mailing, a fine copy. (#166773).
