An interesting and seldom seen title. Very handsome design and clean and tightly bound inside and out. Gilded top edge. The only detractions are a bit of wear to lower front corner and a small loss of gilt to horizontal line at bottom of spine. Overall quite nice. SIGNED and inscribed by author thus, "To my dear friend Mr. Kellen, with esteem and regards of the author, Edmund F. Erk, Washington D.C. 1914." A lively first person account (with photographs) of "a tour of ten thousand miles through the wonderland of the West" to reach the 29th Triennial Conclave Grand Encampment of the Knights Templar in San Francisco in September of 1904.Very entertaining and filled with anecdotes and dialogue. Can be read on two levels -- for the travel info and details as well as for info on the Knights Templar. 321 pages.
