    A California Gold Rush History by Bowers

    I picked up this little gem today at the 2010 FUN Auction. I can't wait to have this one!


    A California Gold Rush History
    Number 29 of 400

    A California Gold Rush History. Arguably the most legendary book by author Q. David Bowers, A California Gold Rush History covers the California Gold Rush and the S.S. Central America treasure. This volume, number 29 in its edition of 400, comes with a number of gold flakes recovered from the S.S. Central America; these are mounted inside the front cover, behind a clear plastic window. The greater treasure, of course, is the knowledge found within the more than 1000 large-format gilt-edged pages. Upper front corner bumped, otherwise well-preserved. Comes with sturdy outer storage case of issue. This important addition to a high-caliber numismatic library is also a perfect complement to another piece of the S.S. Central America treasure, such as a coin or ingot.

    Hi Jesh. I'm not familiar with this book, but I certainly love the cover and binding. You don't see this kind design work much these days.Thanks for sharing.
