California, In-doors and Out; Or, How we Farm, Mine, and Live generally in the Golden State

New York: Dix, Edwards & Co, 1856.
First edition.
Octavo, original burgundy blind stamped cloth, lettered in gilt on spine. Spine faded with slight loss of cloth at ends, spot on front cover, slight browning to preliminary and terminal leaves, else fine.

Quite a substantial book with several chapters on the diggings. The author was an early feminist who once proposed bringing shiploads of brides out for the gold diggers. Cowan comments that "her book contains much that is worthy of interest". [Cowan p. 203. Rocq 16835. Wheat Gold Rush 72. Kurutz 232].
