(pictorial cloth; no dust jacket) [moderately worn and lightly soiled copy, bottom corners bumped, small faded spot at base of spine, both hinges starting; private library label (Library of Frank Graves and Frances Babcock Cressey) on front pastedown, accompanied by contemporary gift inscription to Mrs. Cressey "from her fellow-campers in the mountains of Ramona's Country"; a list of some of the author's other books (possibly from the original dust jacket) is tipped onto the second ffep]. (B&W photographs) A thorough discussion of the Ramona story -- its origins, creation, significance, geography, information about author Helen Hunt Jackson, etc. -- as well as a lot of boosterish bla-bla about the general wonderfulness of Southern California.
