Descripción

Volume two only. Publisher's green cloth, with some small splits at top and bottom of spine and with some sunning. Hinges professionally strengthened. Although just volume two of a two volume set, the narrative includes all of the California portion. Kurutz, "California Gold Rush Bibliography" number 409" Chapter XII, the final portion of the second volume, details a visit to San Francisco. Lucett arrived at the port on October 20, 1849, and spent nine weeks in the city observing the infulence of gold upon its inhabitants. Reflecting on the high prices and the state of labor he noted: "Labour and handicraft work is at an immense premium, whilst the services of those skilled in the humanities are at a comparative discount." Lucett also described Sacramento, 'Sutter's' Fort, and Marshall's discovery. This merchant author wrote in cynical terms about what he saw." The two plates in this volume are "The Island of Moorea" and "The Native Church at the Island of Moorea." 371 pages. N° de ref. de la librería 7598
