About this Item: ReInk Books, 2017. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1849 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. 168 pages.

About this Item: The Book Club of California. 1986. San Francisco., 1986. Hardcover. Condition: Collectible-Very Good. Cloth. Dust wrapper. Illustrations. 550 copies printed by Andrew Hoyem. In the Foreword mention is made of the number of journals kept by those travelling from the East coast to California; some journals were maintained for the entire trip, others o nly for a short time, but they reflected "the personality, interests, and experiences of the writer". Joseph Perkins Beach's Cape Horn journal has elements of significance. His "father owned the ship and that he served as supercargo and captain's cl erk placed him in an important position aboard Apollo". "Since Beach was responsible in part for the sale of the cargo after Apollo reached San Francisco, his account of the last months of 1849 when the cargo was being landed and disposed of is part icularly interesting".
