BOWLES, SAMUEL
Our New West Records of Trave between the Mississippi River and the Pacific Ocean: Over the Plains - over the Mountains - Through the Great Interior Basin - over the Sierra Nevadas - to and Up and Down the Pacific Coast. . .
New York: Hartford Publishing Co, 1869. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. This book is in Good+ to Near Very Good- condition and was likely issued without a dust jacket. Full calf leather binding. The front cover is nearly detached, but is still held on by the spine strings. The text pages are clean and bright. "Samuel Bowles III (February 9, 1826 – January 16, 1878) was an American journalist born in Springfield, Massachusetts. Beginning in 1844 he was the publisher and editor of the Springfield Republican, a position he held until his death in 1878...During his lifetime, and subsequently, the Republican office was a sort of school for young journalists, especially in the matter of pungency and conciseness of style, one of his maxims being "put it all in the first paragraph." In 1865, he made a journey to the Pacific coast with a large company, and in 1868 travelled as far as Colorado. In 1869, he again crossed the continent. He visited Europe in 1862, and again in 1870, 1871, and 1874; indeed, frequent trips were a necessity to him on account of ill health, his constitution having long since been impaired by over-work. Bowles published two books of travel, Across the Continent (1865) and The Switzerland of America (1869) , which were combined into one volume under the title Our New West (1869). His The Pacific Railroad Open, How to Go, What to See was a small collection of papers that originally appeared in the Atlantic Monthly (Boston, 1869).". Good+ .
