1 Houghton, Eliza P. Donner. THE EXPEDITION OF THE DONNER PARTY AND ITS TRAGIC FATE.
Los Angeles: Grafton Publishing Corporation, 1920. Cloth Very Good 
8vo. xxxvi, 375 pp. Green cloth with bright gilt lettering. Photos and illustrations throughout. Tipped into the rear of the book is a three page magazine article, "Epic of Endurance" dated 1939, which summarizes the ordeal of the Donner Party. Title page has the label of Arthur H. Clark company pasted over the original publisher information (Grafton).

This copy is an example of one of the practices of the publishing industry in the early Twentieth Century. When unsold copies of a book were remaindered by the publisher, another publisher often purchased these books. Sometimes, the buyer, (A.H. Clark in this instance) would paste a cancel over the original publisher's imprint on the title page. Additionally, if the remainder copies were unbound, the buyer would have them bound with his own imprint on the spine (as appears to be the case with this copy). 
Price: 150.00 USD
