About this Item

Although reported by Graff as being first published in 1928, there is indication that the author printed a few copies in 1920 after completing his writing. 178 pages. Top edge gilded. All first printing points (Graff 2720). Dark green cloth covers, with gilt lettering and ruled lines. Frontispiece between ii and iii. Includes excerpt from the St. Louis Globe-Democrat on pages 174-177. From the library of former Kansas governor and 1936 presidential candidate, Alf Landon, with his later book plate on blank front end page. Light rubbing on spine, partially affecting gilt lines at foot and head. Very light rubbing on cloth at spine ends and corners. Plate following page 174 is detached, though in place along with its tissue guard. Volume remains otherwise tight and very clean. Nice example of this rare first edition, containing material on an overland trip to California and eventual return by way of Panama, the California Gold Rush, and the Civil War. Size: 12mo.

Store Description

With more than 25 years of experience buying and selling out-of-print, collectible, and rare books, maps, and ephemera, I am now doing business from my home at 60 Poplar Heights Rd.; Chanute, KS 66720; U.S.A. by appointment only. I offer a selection of more than 5000 books of all genre, as well as more than 1000 maps ranging from 15th century to early 20th. All inventory is hand selected and believed to be of significance for the collector, the reader, the historian or the general book lover. Historically, I have specialized in Kansas and regional history, but also maintain quality collections of Natural History, Theology, Americana, Railroad, Travel and Exploration, Medicine, Art, and Psychology, Neurology, and Psychiatry. Fine bindings, plate books, signed and inscribed items are also an important part of my collections. Smaller, though intriguing collections of other genre are also a part of my holdings. Appraisal, consultation, and collection development services are available. Please come and browse, talk books, and have a cup of coffee in a relaxed and book friendly environment. But for the convenience of both of us, please email or call first. Trade terms available and dealers are welcome.
