Other than 1 view each of the Palace Hotel in San Francisco and the Hotel Del Monte in Monterey, all the scenes are of Yosemite and the Mariposa Big Tree Grove. According to Curry & Kruska's "Bibliography of Yosemite" H. S. Crocker lithographs were drawn by E. (Emmanuel) Wyttenbach after George Fiske's photographs. A rare Yosemite view book, quite scarce in commerce and with only 10 recorded on OCLC/WorldCat. Currey & Kruska 100.
