About This Item

San Francisco: D.E. Appleton & Co, 1858. First Edition. Wraps. Very good. 16mo: 64 p. Original printed paper wrappers. Tiny bit of edgewear to the front panel; else a remarkably fresh example. Cowan: p.599; Wheat 162.

Stone had published two California songsters, and their popularity induced him to publish this, the third in a series. Topics include mining, the rowdiness (and loneliness) of life in the camps, longing for home, and the comeliness of California girls - anticipating The Beach Boys by more than a century! The final two pages contain a list of "Mining Localities Peculiar to California".
