"This book, which was three years in preparation, is of outstanding historical importance. It is the first and only work in its field. "Maps of San Francisco Bay" is a good instance of the reason for the existence of book clubs which publish books. No commercial publisher could have afforded to issue this one. The book went out of print on publication and has since become very difficult to procure. Included in the Exhibition of Western Books (Rounce & Coffin Club)." Magee.
