Bradford Torrey died at Santa Barbara, California, October 7, 1912, two days before his sixty-ninth birthday. He had sent this book to the Publishers some weeks before, but had not had an opportunity to read the proof. The manuscript had been prepared, however, with that scrupulous care which he always exercised in his literary work, and there is no reason to suppose that he would have made any important alterations, even in detail, if he had lived to see it through the press.
The Publishers have sought to give the volume something of a memorial character by providing a portrait of the Author and illustrations from photographs of localities treated in the book, in two of which Mr. Torrey himself appears.
