William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

Preceding the article, there is a biographical sketch of John Muir which is not entirely accurate (pp. 102-103.) The article consists of two parts: for the first part, pp. 104-110, see no. 52; for the second part, pp. 110-112, see no. 68. This is, in effect, the second volume of a two-volume work, though there is no indication of this in either volume. This one should not be confused with the first, which has the same title, but is dated 1881 on the title page. This publication was also issued in another binding of tan leather.
