About this Item

8vo, pp. 415. Owner's name on blank. A little foxing, hinges near tender, o/w VG. Cowan p. 675. The second anthology of California verse, published shortly after the first, Outcroppings, and compiled as a rival to it, thus beginning the first literary feud in California. In late 1866, the publisher A. Roman issued Outcroppings, Being Selections of California Verse, edited anonymously by Bret Harte. This first anthology of California verse was immediately roundly criticized for its omissions (numerous California poets were not represented). Within a few months, Hubert H. Bancroft published this rival anthology edited by May Wentworth, which was far more substantial in the number of contributors and slighted no California poet - except for Bret Harte. Wentworth was one of the few serious women writers in San Francisco during the "Golden Era.". Bookseller Inventory # 30345
