The Resources of California, Comprising Agriculture, Mining, Geography, Climate, Commerce, Etc. Etc. Past and Future Development of the State. John S. Hittel.

The Resources of California, Comprising Agriculture, Mining, Geography, Climate, Commerce, Etc. Etc. Past and Future Development of the State.

San Francisco: A. Roman & Company, 1863. Hardcover. xvi, 464p., first edition in 8x5.5 inch diced brown cloth boards. Top and tail rims are frayed with short tears, and one corner-tip shows card and frayed cloth; also, the entire spine panel is sunned, evenly, with near-total dimming of titling. These serious flaws aside, there is a small old bookplate belonging to a private collection, and top edge has acquired dust. On the plus side, while item's original endsheets are a little discolored they are in very good shape, hinges are quite sound, textblock is square and firm, a good (well, good-only) copy.
