Presentation copy. Signed and inscribed by Holman to the Pacific-Union Club of San Francisco on the verso of the half-title page. The Pacific-Union Club was an exclusive gentleman's club, which around this time accounted among it's members William Randolph Hurst and Theodore Roosevelt Jr, as well as Portland's John Churchill Ainsworth, president of the Unites States National Bank and son of Oregon pioneer Capt.
