About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for California Sketches, with Recollections of the Gold Mines by KIP, Leonard (1826-1906).

Description:

(8 1/8 x 4 7/8 inches). 57pp. Publisher's ad on verso of the upper wrapper. Publisher's lettered wrappers Provenance: Josiah Markle (period signature on upper wrapper) First edition of a scarce account of Gold Rush-era California. Leonard Kip's work includes excellent first hand descriptions of San Francisco, Stockton, mining camps, and life in the diggings around the Mokelumne River area. His companions, however, suffered from dysentery, scurvy, low provisions, and little success, and consequently, his impressions of California are a touch gloomy. Predicting a bleak future for the state once the gold ran out, he writes: "It will readily be conceived that California can present few inducements to the settler." According to the introductory notice, these recollections "were intended for one of the daily papers, but the friend to whom they were sent (in the absence of the author), has assumed the responsibility of publishing them in this form, for the benefit of those who are meditating a voyage to the El Dorado of the West." His older brother, William Ingram Kip, went on to become a major figure there as the first Episcopalian Bishop of California in 1853. Scarce. Cowan p. 331; Graff 2343; Howes K174; Kurutz 379a; Sabin 37946; Streeter sale 2638; Bibliotheca Munselliana 474. Bookseller Inventory #
