Promotional prospectus for sale of stock belonging to the Montana Standard Mining Company, a mining enterprise engaged in the extraction of gold -- a product that "sells itself." The company was incorporated with a capital of $2 million, and herein are detailed its properties and their respective worths. The centerfold of the pamphlet is a map of "Properties of Montana Standard Mining Co. near Marysville, Lewis & Clarke Co. Montana." The map outlines each claim; a contemporary hand has made pencil notations to the map. "It is now generally concluded that money judiciously invested in mining enterprises yields a much larger return with no more attendant possibilities of absolute loss." We find no record of the present item in OCLC.
