Notes: A detailed survey of the conditions in the Territory of New Mexico, with department-by-department reports from the various government offices, with the most space devoted to mining.
Otero, in office as the territorial governor for nine years, remains the longest-serving Latinx governor in US history. He was part of a New Mexican business and political dynasty, was proud of his Spanish roots, and promoted nuevomexicano culture throughout his career. This was his first report as governor.
Pp. 361–522, plus black-and-white plates, a fold-out map of the Territory of New Mexico emphasizing water resources, and two folding cross-sections of coal deposits.
This version of the report is identical to the stand-alone version, except for the page numbering, but it lacks the table of contents. This has been extracted from "Annual Reports of the Department of the Interior for the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 1897. Miscellaneous Reports."
Edition + Condition: Very good; bound in recent blue cloth.
Publication: Washington: Government Printing Office, 1897.
