Additional Details

first edition. "John Henry Brown was a fur trader, bartender, citizen-soldier, hotel builder, capitalist, man of affairs, and author. A prominent figure in San Francisco in the early days, 1846-1850, Brown observed and was told of many happenings there. He met many men, both the great and the near great. His reminiscences fill in many of the gaps in the early history of San Francisco"--Zamorano Eighty 10. Cowan 1933, page 77; Graff 429; Howes B853 ("b"); Streeter sale V:2999; Wheat, Gold Rush 23.
