"This classic work is the most used and quoted history of any ever issued of the state. It is likely to remain forever the all time Nevada book, for nothing issued since compares to its exhaustive coverage....There is very little worth knowing about Nevada before 1881 that cannot be found in this first statewide Nevada history" - Paher. Besides the historical and biographical material, a wealth of lithographic plates depict all sorts of mining, agricultural, and domestic scenes throughout the state. HOWES A273, "b." PAHER NEVADA 27.
