Illustrated cloth. Frontispiece. Small illustrations at beginning of chapters. 250 copies printed by Taylor & Taylor. Page sides are uncut. Translated from the Original Spanish with an Introduction by Edwin S. Morby and Arturo Torres-Rioseco. The Bo ok Club of California's 1947 announcement advertising the upcoming release of this book is laid in. From the announcement: "California Adventure is, first of all, an excerpt from a much longer work, Recuerdos del Pasado, in which a distinguished Chi lean man of letters, Vicente Perez Rosales, recounted his memories of the journeys about the world. First issued some sixty years ago in Santiago." "Until now, none of the Recuerdos has been translated into English. About one hundred pages of that remarkable book, however, concerns the author's visit to San Francisco and the Mother Lode in 1849, when he and his brothers, together with several other Chileans of noted families, sought to make their fortunes overnight in California's famous gold mines.
