Gold Fields of the Klondike and the Wonders of Alaska.

512pp, illus, folding map laid in. Slight rubbing to the extremities, gilt titles faded, internally browned, map junctions strengthened, else clean and very good. Significant amounts of gold were discovered in the Klondike district of the Yukon Territory in 1896, enough to spark a major rush. Guides such as this were rushed into print, although by the time word was widely circulated most of the important gold bearing creeks were claimed, and miners spread into Alaska. Here are instructions on where and how to find gold, as well as considerable description of the region. The laid in folding map (16 x 21 inches, and hardly ever found with the book) shows Alaska and the Klondike with routes to the mining camps overprinted in red and an inset of the area around Dawson.
