About this Item

Bound in brown cloth with titles stamped in gilt. Corresponding 1886 dates to the title and copyright pages; no additional printings. With a color folding map of California as a frontispiece. 511 pages, with a 12-page publisher's catalogue bound in at the rear. Dark brown endpapers. There is a faint marginal tidemark on the fore-edge of the prelims just to the map; there is no evidence of it after that point. Former owner's signature and date to the second blank; old price in pencil to the front free endpaper, otherwise unmarked. Leaf 485-486 has a marginal chip; there is no loss of text. There is toning from a news clipping to the pages with the author's box and the series half-title; this clipping was apparently moved to the rear of the book at some point, where it still resides. The clipping is from 1921 and has to do with the San Francisco Vigilance Committe of 1851. Hinges solid; binding square. The cloth has a 2-1/2" wrinkle on the front cover; this appears to be a binder's flaw. The binding shows mild edgewear, with just the hint of a fray at the spine ends. A solid copy with only minor flaws. Bookseller Inventory # 124479
