Detailed Product Description
University of California Press, Berkeley, 1948, 1st edition. 104 pp. 9 pages of plates. Tall hardcover, book is utterly Fine, dust jacket has slightest edge wear, some age yellowing, otherwise bright and Fine.

Farquhar's personal selection of 25 titles of 'unusual character and important contents' related to the history of the Yosemite region, from Zenas Leonard's Narrative (1839) to Nakamura's Conquest of Mt. Whitney (1931). An essential and increasingly scarce reference work. An accurate, complete, and thoroughly enjoyable treatment for those in search of bibliography for Yosemite, the Big Trees, and the High Sierra.
 
Each title is treated in its own chapter; with variants and later editions and other publications listed, the total number of books covered comes to about 150. For ex., chapter 5, 'Vischer's Mammoth Tree Grove and Pictorial' discusses three related illustrated works of 1862 and 1870 by the lithographer and photographer Edward Vischer (1809-1878). Each book or pamphlet is described, with an annotation discussing publication and contents; the text following provides some biographical information, a brief discussion of Vischer's visits to the Calveras Grove and the production of his plates, and lists several other Vischer publications.
