Description:

12mo. 156p. Howes L48: Cowan, p. 341; Kuritz 389. One of the interesting accounts of California during the Gold Rush. The author was in Sacramento in May 1853 just after the great conflagration of the previous year, where he attended a horse auction, saw a bloody fight in the street, followed by wild cattle coming down the streets which were still mostly with permanent structures. He describes scenes in Contra Costa where both Mexicans and Americans who rustled horses and cattle and in league with butchers who took the stolen property and were able to sell meat below the market price. Upon the arrest of the butchers, his associates attempted to use a legal maneuver to rescue them from the arm of the law, but a vigilante committee burned down the house where the horse thieves stayed along with beautiful saddles. The thieves attempted to retaliate but the vigilantes captured them and began hanging them from an oak tree. He goes on to write of the redwoods, Yosemite, and other fascinating issues to the end of the book. Bound in 3/4 black pebble grained cloth over marbled paper covered boards, yellow endpapers. Covers rubbed, pages are clean and bright. The inner hinges have some splitting and the front endpaper is now detached and the rear endpaper has some splitting but firm. Previous owner's name in pencil and from Bangor, Maine. A good copy. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Book Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1878 edition. Language: eng. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper. Original Publisher: Bangor : O.F. & W.H. Knowles 169 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 451685717
