Hammond includes twenty-one lengthy letters written by Daniel Coit from Mexico and San Francisco to his wife that date from February 10, 1848, to December 13,1851. According to Hammond: 'Coit was one of the successful financiers of the city.' The letters provide an outstanding glimpse of the business and social life of San Francisco during that 'Golden Spring.' His business activities allowed the leisure time to produce a series of beautifully detailed pencil sketches of San Francisco and Benicia, eight of which are reproduced herein. Nine sketches of Mexico in 1848 are also included." Kurutz 142. A FINE copy in an acetate jacket. Always FREE SHIPPING via media mail to any United States address. Bookseller Inventory #
