Our American wonderlands by George Wharton James ... Illustrated from photographs. Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co., 1915. 20.2x14 cm, pp. [1-14]  2-297 [298: blank], 119 illustrations from photographs on inserted plates, endpaper maps, original pictorial blue cloth, front panel stamped in green, light blue, gold and blind, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition. Yosemite Valley, pp. 234-240; the Big Trees of California, pp. 241-248 (both the Sequoia gigantea of the Sierra Nevada and the coastal redwoods); Lake Tahoe, pp. 249-258. Emphasis is on James's major interest, the landscape and ethnology of the American Southwest. The chapters on Yosemite Valley and the Big Trees are rather cursory; the descriptions of Yosemite are largely those of Muir, Whitney and Edwin Markham. Very tiny spot on rear cover, virtually a fine copy copy. (#166403).
