LeCount & Strong's San Francisco City Directory for the Year 1854. 1854. Printed by the SF Herald. 264pp, plus 88pp ads, hardcover, foxing throughout, as expected. This copy has a replacement front cover with dark cloth binding at the top. Pages 1 and 2 are replaced by crude xerox copies. This is a very important directory for San Francisco. It is issued the first year of operation for the new Branch Mint at San Francisco, headed by Birdsall, with Hewston as melter & refiner. It belonged to lawyers Love & Rogers, whose name is inscribed on the front cover. The directory lists many businesses and individuals that are scarcely known to researchers. Among them are A.S. Wright, assayer; Charleton, die sinker; as well as main stream businesses such as Chase & Co., soda water mfgrs (2 full page ads), Shreve "rich jewelry", Turner Bros. cordials; banks, assay offices, etc. James King of William listed on p80 (no ads though), Augustus Humbert ("late US Assay Office"). This is the break-out year for San Francisco business, head3d by the opening of the US Mint. 6 x 9" State:California City:San Francisco Date:1854 Provenance:
