The Richest Spot on Earth
Decorative map of the region around Central City, showing one the the major Gold Districts in Colorado.
Also shown are Nevadaville, Blackhawk, Russel, Rollinsville, Perigo and Gilpin. Upper left shows Arapahoe Peak. The point where Edward Bierstadt painted Storm of the Rockies is shown.
The envelope for the map proclaims Gilpin County the Richest Spot on Earth, with a small birdseye view of the County and a list of booster statements illustrated as rays of the sun.
A marvelous bit of ephemera. Information and statistics on Gilpin County on the verso.
The view is rare on the market. This is the second example we have ever seen and the first to include the envelope.
