About this Item

Publication date matches copyright date; no later dates. Thus: the first edition. There are some irregularities to the nice, shiny surfaces of the original, ornately blind-stamped green cloth boards, but this book will close its own text block, has lovely hinges and shiny gilt titles to the spine, call the condition "very good." No dust jacket, as issued. Previous owner's signature dated 1893 to front pastedown. A reminiscence of travel across the Plains in the days before the Civil War, passing through Forts Leavenworth, Laramie, and Bridger (where he met Jim Bridger) as well as Salt Lake City (where he met Brigham Young), to the Gold Rush mining camps of Hangtown and Weaverville, Indian wars, Pioneer politics of 1852 and 1854, formation of the Republican Party, California politics at the beginning of the Civil War, etc., originally written as a series of articles or columns for the "Humboldt Weekly Mail." 452 pp. Reduced from $265.
