"Errata slip inserted facing p[vi]. "Crespi's diaries are printed here as a primary part of this book. They have never before been assembled in one volume or published as a separate work. They were scattered through the tomes of Palou's New California [no.434] and are here reprinted from my English edition of that treatise (Berkeley, 1926) with the addition of several important hitherto unpublished documents, special Introduction and Editorial Notes":- Pref., p.iv. Crespi served on three expeditions: Portola's 1769-1770, Pedro Fages's 1772, and Perez's, 1774, the first recorded Spanish voyage to the coast of British Columbia. Preface also published separately with title: A Pacific coast pioneer (no.57)." -- Strathern, G. M., & Edwards, M. H. (1970).
