Very Good. Pictorial Soft Cover Stapled Wraps. This was later expanded and reissued as "Gold Rush Days with Mark Twain," (1930). Steve Gillis had gone to San Francisco in 1853 and worked on the "San Francisco Herald" during the days of the Vigilantes and the resurrection of San Francisco. In 1857 he went to Oregon to work on the "Messenger." In 1861, when the "Territorial Enterprise" was established in Virginia City, Gillis went there and it was there that he became close friends with Mark Twain. Illustrated throughout with b/w photographs. Covers show light wear and toning, with crease at front bottom right corner and mild loss at tail of spine, creasing along spine. Previous owner's bookplate at free front endpaper; otherwise interior is clean, crisp, tight & bright, unmarked. 128 pp. Approx. 5.5" x 8.5". A very nice copy. Carefully shipped in secure parcel.
