About this Item

12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 200p. An unusually bright, clean copy of a scarce book with a bright picture of the large building of the building of the Society of California Pioneers. HIs first-hand accounts present a colorful picture of early San Francisco and its characters. Along the waterfront, his purchase of property in North Beach which he said sold since it had no future, the insane gambling where fortunes in bags of gold were lost in minutes, and the characters who wandered the streets (perhaps unchanged today). Illustrations throughout. Cowan 330; Kurutz 381. Bookseller Inventory # 016241
