Description:

The Yosemite Valley, both Historical and Descriptive.Published at the Old Cabin, Yosemite Valley, and at Pacific Coast Publishing House, Oakland, 1886. Octavo, original deluxe publisher's binding of full brown morocco, stamped in gold and blind, with marbled endleaves and all edges gilt. 496 pages, illustrated with wood engravings and photographs. Front cover and prelims detached, rear cover ready to detach, and backstrip missing. A few hinges starting within. A "reading copy" only of this scarce First Edition. Cowan I, p. 117; Currey & Kruska 175; Farquhar 18; Rocq 5206. An early printing of the First Edition, the frontispiece photo showing no passengers in the carriage, and no lean-to attached to the nearby cabin. "An extensive and important production. Mr. Hutchings better than any other writer knew his subject from the experience of many years spent in the valley." (Cowan) One of the most important books on the region. Hutchings was an Englishman who first learned of Yosemite's wonders from the reports of the Mariposa Battalion. He conducted the first tourist forays into Yosemite in 1855, and worked as a tireless promoter of Yosemite through the 1860s and 1870s, playing host to visitors at Yosemite as the proprietor of "The Old Cabin." Hutchings built a sawmill in Yosemite that afforded employment for John Muir over a number of years until Muir injured an eye and decided to retire. The savings from his earnings allowed Muir the means to devote ten years in exhaustive study of the geology and botany of the region. Bookseller Inventory #
