First edition. Two distinct works on the mines of Mexico and Colorado. "This editor-mining engineer described the mining districts around Mexico City late in 1905... From Rickard's account it is easy to see reasons for resentment toward the Americans: the companies, for the most part, were owned by Americans, all of the positions involving management were held by Americans, and even when Americans and Mexicans were employed on equal basis, the American earned five times as much in wages." - Cole. AMERICAN TRAVELERS TO MEXICO. 1821-1972. #349.
