California Gold Fields. Foreword by Joseph A. Sullivan

Oakland: Biobooks, 1948. Hardcover. xvii, 163p., rubricated titlepage with gilt embellishment (drop-caps are in gold throughout), line-drawings reproduced in sepia mark each chapter head, nicely gotten-up item in faux gilt paper over boards, spine-titled black. One of a run of 750. Mild signs of handling and age to cover, endsheets toned from acidic bindery glue (this is not first-rate finepress!), a very good copy. The true first issue came out in Cleveland in 1888, when our young miner returned to his native Ohio.
