Treasures of the Queen: The Bisbee Exhibitionby Richard W. Graeme
The perfect souvenir of Bisbee, Arizona, and its fabulous minerals, this 32-page full-color book covers the history and display-quality minerals for which the locality is famous. Forty-two world-class specimens culled from the best collections for a special exhibit at the Flandrau Science Center in Tucson are pictured (in photos by Jeff Scovil), along with an array of old mining scenes, and a recounting of the last great Bisbee exhibit, at the World's Columbian Exposition of 1893 in Chicago.
Issued initially as a supplement to the January-February 2012 issue of the Mineralogical Record, funded in part by Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold, Inc.
