At time of publication only 26 copies of the 1884 original Cherry edition of Redwood and lumbering were known to exist, of which "no two contain the same illustrations." Peter Palmquist has selected the 25 most striking images from the original editions to reproduce here, together with a catalogue of all the images. Designed and printed by James Robertson at the Yolla Bolly Press in a limited edition of 600 copies.
