De Argento Vivo Historic Documents on Quicksilver and Its Recovery in California Prior to 1860 by Elisabeth L Egenhoff As a Supplement to the California Journal of Mines and Geology for October 1953, c.1953, 6x9, 144 pgs, black/white illustrations, softbound, Division of Mines, CA. An extremely interesting account of mining for mercury (aka quicksilver) in California featuring reprints and translations of documents related to the substance dating from ancient Greece to the 19th century. This should be of especial interest to residents of the San Francisco bay area since two of the major mines for this toxic substance were in the region: Redington in Napa county and the New Almaden mine near San Jose. Discovery of mercury at the San Jose site was first documented in 1845. Includes several reprints of early engravings, drawings and paintings of the mines as well as information relating to the court battles associated with the legal ownership of the mine and methods of recovery.
