Condition: Unless otherwise noted, these bulletins are in good to very good condition. They may have lightly bumped corners, slightly soiled covers,
and filing marks and/or stamps on the covers. Please ask if you want a more specific condition description for any individual issue.
When I say "rust marks at spine" this means that the staples are rusty and/or the rusty staples of another report have left marks - it is not a big deal.
* * * These are all Original printings unless specifically noted.

More recent descriptions are more detailed than earlier descriptions - Please ask if you need a larger description of illustrations for any publication.

A listing like "24 plates (3 in pocket)" means 24 total plates with 21 plates bound in text and 3 folded in pocket.
All publications are complete with all plates and maps unless specifically and clearly noted in RED.

United States Bureau of Mines : Report of Investigations
10x8:, soft-bound. Staple bound. Most are illustrated. Many illustrations in earlier reports are in addition to the numbered pages.
* * * “PLUS Illus.” means illustration pages are NOT numbered and are in addition to the page count listed.
Please note that many early United States Bureau of Mines reports were rather crudely printed, especially the text pages - illustrations are often better..

Covers change over the years, the earliest are the same paper as the interior pages.
