This website.
This website provides detailed bibliographic, publishing, and price information for books and pamphlets written about the Lost Dutchman Mine and other related topics. Note: I do not list newspaper or magazine articles, nor the multitude of lost mine and treasure books that mention the Lost Dutchman. More extensive bibliographies are available. See: Davis, Sikorsky, Probert, and Conatser.

Core Works is the heart of this website. Presented are books, pamphlets, and maps that focus exclusively on either Jacob Waltz, the Lost Dutchman Mine, or Superstition Mountain. Material of a related nature can be found in: related works, fiction and poetry, juvenile or young adult fiction, western fiction, art and maps. A publishing chronology is also provided.

Bibliographic information

On bibliographic information.
For each entry I list original price (when known) and recent used prices. For example, $1.50/ $5.00, $6.00 means the original price was $1.50 and recent used copies listed for $5.00 and $6.00. Original prices are almost always taken from the books or pamphlets themselves, otherwise from Cumulative Book Index (CBI) or Books in Print (BIP). Bibliographic information from the OCLC database (OCLC) is noted. When the original price is unknown, and/or I've never found a copy for sale, a "?" is used. "SMHS" denotes the Superstition Mountain Historical Society reprint series.

Notes and Comments

On notes and comments.
These range from serious assessments to just noting a work's wonderful eccentricities. I do try to take each work as seriously as it takes itself, though obviously this isn't always possible. And I try not to be too critical. After all, many of these books and pamphlets represent the work of a lifetime for their authors - dedicated Dutch Hunters one and all. "RB" denotes a quotation from Robert Blair's book. "CM" denotes comments from Estee Conatser's and Karl von Mueller's work. "GD" refers to information Greg Davis provided.
