John Doble's Journal and Letters from the Mines: Mokelumna Hill, Jackson, Volcano and San Francisco, 1851-1865

by Doble, John


Denver: Old West Publishing Co., 1962 Denver: Old West Publishing Company, 1962. First Edition and Limited Edition; 1 of 1,000 copies designed and printed by Lawton Kennedy. All maps present and in fine condition, including rear fold-out; illustrations from photographs and engravings. Edited by Charles L. Camp. Quarto, beige cloth with red and white illustration and black title on front cover, gilt spine title, xiv + 1 + 304 pp. + index. Near Fine. See scans. Spine bottom very lightly touched, stamp of Clyde Arbuckle (see below) at front pastedown, small dark spot on rear cover (barely visible in scan). Kurutz 197; Rocq 1259 - Doble left Indiana in 1851, crossed the Isthmus, and arrived in San Francisco in early January, 1852. After surviving the Mexican War and 15 years in San Francisco and the gold mines, Doble died of apoplexy apparently caused from falling asleep with a pipe in his mouth; interestingly, he left a library of some 200 volumes, indicating a literacy which is born out by his journal and letters. For a bit of association status, Clyde Arbuckle, who died in January of 1998, was an expert on San Jose history, and the author of "The History of San Jose" and "Santa Clara County Ranchos". l50n
