Detailed Product Description
New York, C.M. Saxton, Barker & Co. 1860, 1st edition. 386 pp, + 10 pp ads. Original brown embossed cloth, rubbed at extremities and some age-related yellowing, but tight and Near Fine.

First publication in book form of letters written by Greeley to the New York Tribune during his journey through Kansas, Utah, and California. "Whoever visits California a few years hence, will doubtless find it greatly changed from the California so hastily run over but faithfully described by me in August, 1859. The antiquary of 1870 may derive gratification if not instruction from a contrast of the populous, enterprising, and thrifty Central North America of his day, with that same region overrun and roughly depicted by me in the summer of 1859."
