460. BANCROFT, H. H. The Works.... San Francisco: A. L. Bancroft & Co., 1886-1890. 39 vols., original sheep with black leather spine labels. Some binding wear and a few covers detached or weak.

Basic Texas Books 6 (citing the vols. on Texas and Northern Mexico). Cowan, p. 33: “As time passes and prejudice drifts into obscurity, these works become more strongly entrenched each year. For scholars and investigators they will always remain the greatest source of authority.” Edwards, Enduring Desert, p. 19: “Whether it be desert, mountain, lake or river, Bancroft describes it. No important character or event escapes his scrutiny. Any listing of desert material dares not omit the inclusion of Bancroft without impairing its effectiveness as a medium of reference.”

Graff 155. Howell 50:1458: “One of the most ambitious historical projects ever undertaken. The California volumes were the core of the ‘Works’.” Howes B91. Smith 530. Wheat, Books of the California Gold Rush 10. Zamorano Eighty 30 (citing vols. 18-24, the volumes on California): “Bancroft’s histories were produced in a literary factory in much the same fashion as Alexander Dumas produced his novels. Being the work of many hands and minds they are spotty in quality. Nevertheless his History of California is the best extant for it contains more material about the state’s past than any other historian has succeeded in amassing. Its faults are obvious, to be sure. It lacks an index; the portions dealing with the gold-rush are exceedingly meager; and Bancroft’s prejudices are apparent in many instances. However, the best evidence of its superiority is the fact that invariably research workers consult it first for information concerning California events.”

Roman, 1876. 274 [2] [4] pp., frontispiece, illustrations 8vo, original blue cloth, stamped in gilt and black, peach endpapers. Extremities chipped, spine slightly darkened, some corner and edge wear, front endpapers slightly darkened where an old clipping was laid in, hinges cracked, and a few signatures sprung. The upper and lower covers are in good shape and quite bright, and the text is very clean. More respectable a copy than most, and no ill-conceived cosmetic work mars the book’s natural beauty.

First American edition, first printing (wove paper, front matte pages [i]-xvi with the two blank pages between fly-title and frontispiece. BAL 3369. Grolier American Hundred 79: “Mark Twain refreshed his spirit in this semi-autobiographical story of boyhood. The irresponsibility, the love of odd adventure, and the sense of natural justice as opposed to the village code...presented a sharp contrast to the Sunday School or rags-to-riches literature which was then the common fare doled out to children.”
