HENDERSON, B.I.
Go It Alone! Prospectors Guide and Processing & Smelting Precious Metals (2 Items)
Port Coquitlam, BC, Self Published. Unknown. Three-hole Duotang, 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Two duotang binders, fairly worn at edges. First is called, in full, "Go It Alone! Prospectors Guide to the Identification of Minerals with the 'Jiffy' Mining System B.I. Henderson Personal Handbook No. 1. This binder contains 21 photocopied leaves, most of them two-sided, of a printed piece, presumed to have been written by B.I. Henderson, but with no printed authorship or date. The final page states: "Published by the Similkameen Spotlight Publishing Co. Ltd. Princeton, B.C." Handbook No 2 is titled "Go It Alone! Processing & Smelting Precious Metals from Claim to the Bank Single-handed with the Jiffy' [sic] System of Precious Metal Recovery No Other Help Needed B.I. Henderson Personal Handbook No. 2", and consists of photocopies of 42 handwritten single-sided pages which are numbered from 1 up to 77. The last few pages (some of which are too darkly copied but are readable with difficulty) have no numbers at all, and among these, and seemingly relevant, is one numbered "P. 74". Thus a fair number of originally numbered pages have been omitted from this reprint. Omitted rather than removed because the fold-down tangs are tight and have not been adjusted as they would have been were pages subsequently removed. The final page of both binders contains an inscription to one "Norma" signed by the apparent author. What is to be made of this strange offering, seemingly by a rather independent and idiosyncratic former prospector? The seller has made inquiries to the Similkameen Spotlight and will add further information to this description when or if it is received. Judging by wear and photocopy quality the seller guesses that these binders were produced as late as the early 1960s, and that the previously published material, based on font and style, dates from the 1950s. Certainly it is no older than 1948 when the Similkameen Spotlight came into existence. Good/No Jacket as Issued.
