Book Description The Book Club of California, San Francisco, 1984. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. First edition. Title page illustration by Rex Brandt, with reproductions throughout text including one facsimile of a letter. First edition, limited to 500 copies. The title of this interesting study does not perhaps fully suggest its contents which consist of Peckham's reminiscences of southern California and his correspondence as a chemist and geologist during an important period in the California oil industry. The biographical Prologue and Epilogue identify Peckham as one of the new and increasingly influential breed of specialized scientists. Prospectus laid in. Illustrated green paper-covered boards over a black cloth spine with gilt titles. A near fine copy in the original plain paper dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 54988
