About this Item

First Edition in English. Small 8vo. 156pp. Frontispiece of Fr. Junipero Serra. Rust cloth stamped with black lettering and decoration. Copyright slip tipped in following title page; errata slip sipped in facing last page of text. A very good copy (rubbing to covers; scraping along bottom and fore-edges; early owner name; minor pencil notations). The first English translation of a few chapters from the original publication. Zamarano 59 mistakenly puts the date of this translation to 1890. Father Serra was the founder of the mission and Father Palou was his companion and devoted friend. (Cowan p. 471; Graff 3178; HIll 1289; Howes P56; Zamarano 80: 59). Bookseller Inventory # 16491
