Songs of the Western Shore

1879 San Francisco: Bacon & Co., First edition. Blindstamped green cloth lettered in gilt, 204 pps. Collection of poems about the Western pioneers, particularly those of the Pacific Coast, but including pieces on Lake Tahoe, Carson City, etc. A tight copy, cover gily bright, rubbing and two snags to the spine. Quite an interesting little collection; the author's stated apology was that he was attempting to capture the spirit and flavor of the Western pioneers without great concern for the poetic merit.
