Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin, .
Hardcover. Very good. Early reprint, with "Published March 1911" on copyright but no date on title page. 354 pp, with illustrations, index, and folding map. Original blue cloth binding with lovely illustration of trees against a golden moon. Rubbing to corners and spine ends, spine somewhat darkned (but fully legible), internals clean and tightly bound. No dust jacket, but in a protective mylar over. Born in England in 1864, Chase moved to California at the age of 25, settling in the Palm Sprints area. He traveled extensively in the state and wrote several books about his travels and on the natural and human history of the places he visited. A contemporary review of this title opined that "Chase writes with a buoyant intensity of appreciation and an exuberant imagination that cannot fail to strike fire from the duller sensibilities of the best of us.”.
