Le Conte's Rambling in the High Sierra

Estimate
US$200 - US$300
Price realised:
n. a.
Beschreibung:

x, [6], 152, [2] pp. Illustrated with 3 plates reproducing photographs from the original 1875 edition; gravure frontispiece portrait from a photograph; facsimile of original title-page. (8vo) brown paper-covered stiff wrappers, paper spine label. One of 1500 copies printed by Taylor & Taylor. Third Edition. The earliest readily obtainable edition of Le Conte's classic account of camping in the high Sierra; the 1875 edition was limited to about 120 copies, and the 1900 edition, separate from the Sierra Club Bulletin, is perhaps even more scarce, most copies having been destroyed in the 1906 earthquake and fire. Farquhar calls this edition "a very attractive book" - Farquhar 14c.
