    California Gold Field Related Pamphlet: H. W. Ford. A Collation of Words Common to the French and English Languages. Jackson, Cal.: Amador Dispatch Print, 1883. forty pages, printed paper wraps, 5" x 7.75". Ford identified 2500 words that were common to both the French and English languages and it is very likely that he compiled the pamphlet in an effort to aid communication between the large population of French miners in the region and the English speaking locals. Very few examples of this work are known to exist. A few small closed tears, some sun fading to front cover, modern tape reinforcement to spine, else remarkable sound and in very good condition.
