First edition, rare. A synopsis of the trade, transportation and activities connected with coal between Pennsylvania and New York. The Miner’s Journal tracked the pulse of American coal trade, including importations of foreign coal and exports of domestic material. It prided itself on circulating ‘more largely among the trade than any other paper published, embracing upon its list of subscribers, a larger number of capitalists than any other weekly paper outside the large cities’. The folding chart gives statistics on the anthracite coal, semi-anthracite and bituminous sent to market from Pennsylvania between 1820 and 1869.
