About this Item

The legend of Joaquin Murietta is a lengthy and circuitous tale of many facts mired in little contemporary documentation. Rollin Ridge first told the story in The Life and Times of Joaquin Murieta in 1854 and the outlaw was reportedly captured by Harry Love and his head displayed in a Stockton museum. Rosita is, on one hand, one of the earliest contemporary books to be written on the notorious bandit and (as one Cataloger surmised) the earliest poem to be printed in San Jose, CA. Scarce in the marketplace and at auction.the book was overlooked by Cowan, Howes, Wheat, Rocq and all of the many California bibliographies. Streeter purchased the Eberstadt copy.who described Rosita as "a most unusual item." A rare and important California book .this copy in a brilliant deep blue with edge wear and light scuffing, internally fine with no markings, names, stains, tears or library stamps. Original end papers and original cloth. A desirable copy. Size: Octavo. Bookseller Inventory # 000345
