San Francisco, John Howell, 1957. 124 pp, b/w illustrations - frontispiece portrait and two foldout circulars, appendix, index. Maroon cloth hardcover, pictorially stamped in white, lettered in gilt. Fine.

One of 600 copies. Designed and printed by Lawton Kennedy. The Archives of the Society of California Pioneers holds a folder of the papers of Dr. Marius Duvall, (1818-1891). The folder contains a photocopy of forty-eight pages of Marius Duvall's diary and a photocopy of an 1846 letter of correspondence. 

The diary spans April 1846-May 15, 1847 and details his life aboard the ship Portsmouth, including landing in Monterey, California, on April 22, 1846.
