This is a hardcover first edition copy in tooled leather binding. I call it a reading copy, lots of foxing, reglued spine, lacking one page. The story of early California, lots of illustrations. I like the main street of San Francisco, just a few tents, etc. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
