[Circa 1895]. 17.4x22.5 cm (oblong octavo), pp. [1-4], 18 plates, original two-part blue cloth, front panel stamped in gold, decorated endpapers. First edition. A fine pictorial record of the twin cities of Marysville and Yuba City, situated at the head of navigation, the junction of the Feather and the Yuba rivers, providing eighty-seven views of public buildings, businesses, residences, birdseye views and street scenes at the end of the nineteenth century. After his partnership with William Ottinger ended in 1886, Iowa-born James Hezekiah Crockwell (1855-1933), billed himself as a traveling photographer, specializing in mining views in both Utah and Nevada. In addition to the Marysville and Yuba City view book, Crockwell's photographs were featured in SOUVENIR OF PARK CITY: HER MINES, MINING AND PLEASURE RESORTS and SOUVENIR OF THE COMSTOCK, two other albums produced by the Albertype Co. in the 1890s. Crockwell retired from photography in 1900. See Mautz, p. 602. Norris Catalogue 4302. Rocq 15639. Lacks rear free endpaper.
