Tulare County's wonderland highways and by-ways by A. E. Miot. A. E. MIOT.

Tulare County's wonderland highways and by-ways by A. E. Miot. Visalia, California: Issued by Tulare County Board of Trade, n.d. [1918]. 23.5x15.7 cm, pp. [1-32] (not paginated), 74 illustrations, plus one on front cover, inserted map (folded), pictorial white wrappers printed in black, stapled. First edition. Most of this booklet is devoted to descriptions of Sequoia National Park, General Grant National Park, Crystal Cave (discovered 18 April 1918) and the southern Sierra Nevada backcountry ("Mineral King, Kern River Canyon and Mt. Whitney"). Much of content in the section on Sequoia National Park is attributed to "Mr. Edmund Mitchell, the world traveler, newspaper correspondent and novelist [who] visited this region, going from Giant Forest by Alta Meadows and Mineral King to Kern River Canyon." Edmund Mitchell is probably the Scottish journalist (various newspapers, including the Los Angeles Times), novelist and early Hollywood filmmaker/scriptwriter Edmund Mitchell (1861-1917); the source of the quotations attributed to Mitchell has not been located. Additionally, there is a two and a half page anonymously presented description of a trip from Soda Meadows and Kern Lakes to Mt. Whitney. There are also brief descriptions of Camp Nelson and Camp Wishon. Many of the illustrations, mostly three, four, or five on a page, illustrate scenes in the Sierra Nevada. The folded map, "Tulare County California ... Drawn & Compiled B. O. Lovelace -- County Surveyor Tulare County -- October 1918 ... Map Issued by Tulare County Board of Trade Visalia California," 27.5x43 cm, shows the county's state and county highways, dirt roads, trails, creeks, incorporated cities and towns not incorporated. Rocq (1970) 15254. A fine copy. (#166855).
