MAPS AND SURVEYS OF THE PUEBLO LANDS OF LOS ANGELES

Los Angeles: Dawson's Book Shop, 1976. First Edition. Hardcover. Limited to 375 copies, this is an unnumbered presentation copy inscribed by Harlow to scholar and collector Ed Carpenter and signed by printer Grant Dahlstrom and publisher Glen Dawson. A significant work of scholarship, which "makes clear that one hundred years passed between the first entitlement to land and the final adjudication and legitimization of the city's land title. Such a comprehensive approach to the cartographic history of Los Angeles had never previously been undertaken." Includes 16 maps and illustrations, including ten folding (two are housed in the rear pocket). Prospectus laid in. Quarto. Original decorative paper-covered boards over a dark gray cloth spine, with gilt titles. Mild wear to the bottom corners. Better than very good. Zamorano Select 43. Very good. Item #68037
