We are happy to make available to you a limited number of the Second Edition of Philip Chambless and Mike Ryan's meticulously researched story of the early days of American turquoise mining. Philip, a historian by training, did over 20 years of research, combing county records, first hand accounts, and more to uncover the real story behind Tiffany and the New York jewelers who thought they could maintain a monopoly on turquoise mining in the West. This is a fascinating read and a must-have for any turquoise collector's library. This updated second edition is a large format soft cover 10.5x8 inches, and it matches the soft cover versions of Turquoise in America Part Two - 1910 to 1990 and Turquoise in America Part Three - Stories of Turquoise 1990 to 2020 to make a nice set of turquoise history books for your library.
