About this Item
vi, 44p., 10.75x14.25 inches, decorated title page of green Monterey Cypress (with light-offset reflection from ink transfer, looks rather like the shadow of the tree!) foreword, marginal annotation, three tipped-in photo portraits of the subjects, very good first edition hardcover limited to 105 copies bound in tan cloth, decorated with Cypress design and quarter brick-cloth backing and paper title label on spine. Generational account of an early California pioneer, his family and particularly his daughter Lee L. Jacks, big landowners in Monterey County; one of the higher points on the hilly Peninsula is "Jacks Peak." Presswork uncredited, but one Arthur Lites is responsible for "decoration and design;" his neat small cypress-tree silhouette, struck in moss-green, may be found on every single page.
