Ver Mehr, Rev. J.L. CHECKERED LIFE: In the Old and New World
San Francisco: A.L. Bancroft and Company, 1877. Second, expanded edition. This second edition includes material on the San Francisco gold rush. Hardcover. Faint foxing to page edges, some very moderate wear to green cloth covers (decorated and lettered in gilt and in blind), thus a nearly fine copy; no dust jacket.
Memoirs of an event-filled, turbulent, visionary life, by the Belgian-born Ver Mehr, who journeyed to the U.S., was ordained as an Episcopalian minister and sent to California as a missionary, eventually founding a school in Sonoma.
