Poker; As It Was Played in Deadwood in the Fifties

Palo Alto: Wheatstalk Press, 1928. Soft cover. One of the earliest publications of the Roxburghe Club of San Francisco, reflecting founder Carl I Wheat's enthusiasm for fine printing and California history. 10 leaves in paper wrappers, reprinting an anonymous story first published in Hutching's California Magazine in 1858. 'Of this Episode of California's youth one hundred impressions have been struck by Carl I. Wheat at his Wheatstalk Press under the oaks in Palo Alto, Alta California, this Year of Our Lord of the one thousand, nine hundred twenty and eighth, and of the Admission of California the seventy and eighth, this copy being of said number eighty and sixth.' Wear and scuffing to paper wrappers, particularly the spine. Red wrappers have faded with age, interior is bright and clean. 10 unnumbered leaves, with a smaller leaf only partially bound-in with an explanation of the work from Wheat with a humorous description of the difficulty of operating his press. 23 x 16 cm. Very Good. Item #2022-M319
