The City of the Saints and Across the Rocky Mountains to California
by Burton, Richard F.
London: Longman, Green, Longman, and Roberts, 1861. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 8vo. 707 pp. Bound in the original rich green-pebbled cloth (bound by Edmonds & Remnants in London, with the binder's ticket on the rear pastedown) with gilt titling on the spine and a beehive decoration embossed on the front board. Includes a map, a plan, and eight black and white steel-engraved plates. The final two plates in the book are bound out of order and face different leaves than the ones for which the list of illustrations calls. The frontispiece lacks the tissue guard, and the plate on 436 also lacks the tissue guard. Both pastedowns have lists advertising the other books published by Longman. An attractive copy of this classic piece of Americana written by one of history's greatest explorers. Howes B1033; Wagner-Camp 370:1; Cassada 28; Penzer 69. Very Good with a small spot of wear to the front board, a few tiny abrasions to the front pastedown and the gutters, and a small spot of discoloration on one of the leaves. (Inventory #: 00007236)
