Shattuck Arizona Copper Co Blueprints from James J. Hill Estate
Here we have a lot of six antique blueprints from the Shattuck-Arizona Copper Company. They were found in a stack of prints from the James J. Hill archive.
I believe they originated in the 1920s, when Louis Hill, son of James J. Hill, expanded the railroad empire into mining. The mine is sliced into several sections, with names like "Morning Star", "Iron Prince", and "Copper Rock." The plate prints cover several levels of the mine from the 500 to 900 level. I'm not sure what that means but it looks serious. The red pencil comments are cool as well.

Here are the measurements for the authentic prints: - Plate 2, 500 level - 8.5" x 13" - Plate 3, 600 level - 8.5" x 16" - Plate 4, title page - 28" x 17" - Plate 4, 700 level - 17" x 16" - Plate 5, 800 level - 26" x 24" - Plate 6, 900 level - 8.5" x 13"
The prints contain numerous fold creases. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship to the continental USA only. The prints will be shipped in a poster tube. Free shipping on the prints.
A lot of interesting material in this one. You'll unroll a ton of history with this set.
