30 pp. Foreword by Jeannette Dyer Spencer. Illustrated from photographs by Ansel Adams. (8vo) 23.8x15.2 cm (9½x6"), decorated wrappers. Second Edition.

The main text is an article based on notes originally written by Dr. Phyllis Ackerman, who, along with Professor Arthur Upham Pope, designed by interior of the magnificent hotel, now (as of March 1, 2016) called the Majestic Yosemite Hotel  due to a legal dispute between the U.S. Government, which owns the property, and the outgoing concessionaire, Delaware North, which claims rights to the trademarked name. OCLC/WorldCat lists only three copies of this second edition, and ten of the 1935 first edition. Ownership rubberstamp of W.B. Camp, Jr., to front wrapper.
