Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1911. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. "Muir was seventy-two years old when he began to prepare the journal of his first summer in the Sierra for publication. With the skillful editing of his mature years, he retains the refreshing spontaneity and enthusiasm of his youthful experiences and observations, interspersed as they are with his lyrical and oft-times mystical reflections. Thus, this book, published near the apex of his career, reaps the competence of age while capturing the essence of youth, and becomes, we believe, his finest book." Includes 12 plates reproduced from photographs by Herbert W. Gleason and 21 textual illustrations from sketches made by the author in 1869. Octavo. Original green cloth binding, with pictorial gilt and light green stamping. The front flyleaf has been excised. Mild rubbing to the gilt, with a bit of negligible wear to the corners and tips; else crisp and clean. Kimes 299.
