this map is respectfully inscribed by Reading Howell." This is a rare

Map Showing the Coal Leases on the Girard Estate, in Schuylkill and
Columbia PA, 1878 A large horizontal and rare lithographed map with
original hand color of the coal leases in the Girard Estate, Columbia
County Pennsylvania, drawn by Heber S. Thompson and printed by J. H.
Camp, Philadelphia. Leases are pastel colored and named, with the town
of Frackville at the bottom center. Special Note: In Schuylkill and
Columbia Counties there were eleven coal collieries in operation under
ten leases. According to the 1879 Board report, the first coal removed
and sold commercially from the Estate’s mines occurred in 1863. That
year 40,788 tons were sent to market. In 1879, the amount marketed was
1,600,000 tons and royalties grosses $463,644. The Estates coal mines
were leased with a royalty of forty cents per ton and progressed to
fifty-four cents. Three- fourths of that was reinvested “in the real
property in the City, so as not to diminish the fund upon which the
support of the College must ultimately rely when these lands shall have
been stripped of their mineral resources.” In 1889, also, “the income
from the 35,407,710 tons of coal shipped this year has never been
equaled in the history of the trust”. Condition: Very Good, four
vertical folds hardly noticeable.
