About this Item

Small 8vo. Crimson cloth with gilt spine lettering and extensive black pictorial stamping. 452pp. Decorative endpapers. Very good. Spine slightly sunned; front inner hinge expertly, archivally strengthened, thus tight. A tight and attractive copy of this later edition, the "Franklin Edition," with spine gilt bright and lovely. Verbose subtitle continues: "Giving Truthful Accounts of the Awful Fate of Hundreds of Overland Emigrants Amid the Snow-Drifts of the Truckee Peaks, from Whence Half-Frozen Men, Women and Children Were Carried Over Slippery Cliffs, Lashed to the Backs of Their Gallant Rescuers." And, yes, there's more: "To Which Is Added a Full Account of the Bear Conquest of California, by a Handful of American Adventurers, Who Levelled the Way for the Triumphs of Stockmon and Fremont, and the Glorious and Glittering Days of '48 and '49." Whew! Strangely, although the spine and front board note "Illustrated," this edition bears no illustrations. A lovely copy of a title usually found in rough, bedraggled condition.
