[113]pp. plus fifty plates reproduced from lithographs. With additional portfolio containing an extra set of plates. Large oblong folio. Original three-quarter morocco and cloth with additional cloth portfolio. Corners worn, extremities rubbed. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Bright and clean internally. Very good. One of 100 copies printed on Alexandra Japan paper and issued with an extra portfolio of plates, this being no. 92. A fine collection of early California lithographs reproduced in book format, with useful descriptive text. Printing was done by A. Carlisle & Co., the successors of the firm of Britton & Rey from whose establishment most of the lithographs here reproduced were originally issued. In addition to being issued with an extra set of plates, the limitation statement indicates that this work was also issued with an original California newspaper of the era, as well as an original document, neither of which is present here. Still, scarce with the extra plates. HOWES W164, "aa.". Bookseller Inventory # WRCAM 44421
