MR's for sale here are in very good to mint condition.

 Occasionally I find an issue which have moderate surface scuffs on their covers (after passing through the mail)especially for volumes 20-24. These issues are fine internally.  I am selling these for $5 off the usual price.  Please inquire if you are interested in a clean copy with some surface scuffs.  The packaging of MR's improved in later years.

Some volumes, in later years, contained special issues which are desginated below using decimal points, i.e. if originally released with issue one, the special issue is numbered 1.1, etc.

All copies sold are wrapped carefully and will be shipped in special packaging for protection during shipment.

Mineral Collections in Colorado
Mineral Collections in Colorado gives an inside look at the mineral collections of 36 people and three mineral museums in the State of Colorado. Beginning with "A Brief History of Mineral Collecting in Colorado," editor Wendell Wilson provides a 16-page review of the earliest mineral collectors in the state, including many historical photos of people, labels, shops and early advertisements. Following that introduction are individual chapters devoted to most of the major mineral collectors and public mineral museums in Colorado, with biographical notes on their personal histories and collecting philosophies, illustrated by over 600 beautiful color specimen photos. At the end is a two-page bibliography of all the articles ever published on Colorado localities and museums in The Mineralogical Record, from 1970 through 2014.
