This beautiful 1895 copy of 'A Truthful Woman in Southern California' has a poppy and butterfly on the front cover, as well as two butterflies on the spine. This classic book was first written in 1893 and is an (often comical) guide to tourists planning a rail trip to Southern California, based on the author's own travels. Her writings include Coronado Beach, San Diego, Los Angeles, Pasadena, Mount Wilson, San Bernardion, Riverside, and Santa Barbara.

Inside we discover that it belonged to an 'Alice L. Norton' who apparently had an extensive library as she numbered it '505'. The nameplate has a very sweet little verse on it:
'If thou art borrowed by a friend,
Right welcome shall he be
To read, to study, not to lend,
But to return to me.'

It also has a note which reads: 'A remembrance of Easter 1895. To Alice, from Papa and Mamma'.

The book has some scuffing on the cover, as can be seen in the photos, and the corner of the first (blank) page has torn off, but otherwise it is in good vintage condition.
