About this Item

Gorgeous presentation copy of an interesting collection of short stories. Kellogg gives us six short stories set in California, Mexico, and Alaska, with prefatory matter including a printed short laudatory letter from Joaquin Miller, reproducing his holograph signature and dated November 7th 1903. Presentation/Provenance: The presentation is on the dedication page and reads: "For Mr. James L. Carhart. With the best sentiments of the author. Eugenia Kellogg. (Mrs. E. B. Holmes). June 2nd 1918. San Francisco." And the recipient has written in pencil, "Note: Mrs. E. B. Holmes is the widow of Mr. Edwin B. Holmes, a fellow actor with me in the celebrated American comedian, John E. Owens' company, which played at the Vanities Theater, New Orleans, La, the season of 1874-5." Carhart secured a second copy of the frontispiece portrait of Kellogg and on the verso has written: "E.B. Holmes was a member of John E. Owens' company, which played at the Vanities Theater, New Orleans, La, the season of 1874-5. Mr. Holmes played old men and character parts ? same as I did." Binding: Publisher' green ribbed cloth, stamped in gilt on front cover with the author's name, a shortened version of the title, and the image of Telegraph Hill in the era when it was surmounted by a "castle" ? "Poccalito" in his pauper's rags framed between flourishes below this. => A very interesting cover. 12mo (17.5 cm; 7"). 130 pp. Not in Wright. Bound as above with cloth and gilt fresh and bright; a clean, obviously always treasured, little volume. Very good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 34675
