About this Item: Arthur H. Clark Company, Glendale, CA, 1959. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good Plus. If you are looking for a good deal on an important gold rush book - - here it is. Robert Kelley's treatment of the hydraulic mining era in California's Sacramento Valley has turned out to be a California classic. This copy is in all but fine condition with the brown cloth cover showing no signs of wear or defects. The gilt lettering on the spine is still bright and clean and the corners are all but new. The interior follows in fine condition with the deckled edges still as issued. There are no markings or staining at all to the text body. Kelley's description of the controversy and environmental damage brought on by hydraulic mining remains the best source on the subject. Hydraulic mining led to the famous California Supreme Court case in the 1880's that determined that hydraulic mining be regulated and controlled. 327 pages. Seller Inventory # 1505-265
