336pp. Duodecimo [16 cm] Brownish cloth covered boards with a gilt stamped title on the spine, a black ink stamped title on the front cover, and black ink stamped designs on the front cover. Good. The covers are rubbed. The spine is rolled, and there are several small moisture stains on the spine. The spine ends and corners of the covers are bumped. The pages are yellowed. The rear board is slightly stained. The underlying boards are peeking through at the corners. There are occasional light stains on the pages. There is a gift inscription in pencil on the front free endsheet, a notation in pencil on the last page of the text, and a faint notation on the rear free endsheet. The text block is cracked several times, however it is still quite sturdy.
Subjects include First Impressions of a California Earthquake, Monte Diablo, June Weather and Trade Winds, Petaluma, Blue Canon, and more.
