First edition. An early account by a Englishman who sailed from Liverpool in January of 1849, to New York, and then travelled overland to the California gold fields. Kelly details his journey to California in the first volume, to include accounts of slavery, Native Americans, Salt Lake City, etc. Kurutz notes that the second volume "contains one of the most detailed and enlightening accounts of life in the mines" (370a).
