The vision of Misery Hill. A legend of the Sierra Nevada and miscellaneous verse. With illustrations by Harry Fenn and others

New York: Putnams, 1891. First edition, 8vo, pp. viii, 150; errata slip, 6 plates by Harry Fenn, et al.; but for three small spots on the front cover, a fine copy in original red cloth gilt, a.e.g. Although the introduction is dated Newark, N.J., 1891, it begins: "To my fellow miners of California and the Pacific coast..." Several of the poems and illustrations are about western mining; of the others, one is against the beliefs of Robert G. Ingersoll, the agnostic, and another is to Frank Forrester, the great sporting writer who had committed suicide in Newark in 1858, and who appears to have been a friend of the poet's. Not in Cowan.
