FIRST EDITIONS. Extract from: Scribner's Magazine, Vol. 22, Nos. 5 and 6, September and October, 1881, pp. 710-723 and 921-931. 8vo. 9 3/4 x 7 inches. 25 figures, also included as a frontispiece is a half-toned portrait of Muir, John Burroughs, and Francis F. Browne extracted from World To-day, Vol. 18, pp. 588-593, circa 1910; text clean, unmarked, paper toned. Housed in a library binder of cloth-backed stiff boards; binding square and tight. Very Good. Prior to this publication, Muir had written about the Sierra forests as a whole; here he "considers the various species of which they [the forests] are composed. Evident throughout is Muir's ardent and, yes, worshipful love of trees. His delightfully inviting descriptions of the various species reveal his intimate knowledge gained through long experience with them in all seasons." Kimes and Kimes. REFERENCE: Kimes and Kimes, John Muir, 2nd ed., Nos. 124 and 127.
