ANZA'S CALIFORNIA EXPEDITIONS

Berkeley: University of California Press, 1930. First Edition. Hardcover. "Juan Bautista de Anza (1735-88) was the foremost land explorer in Spanish California. With his expedition of 1774 he opened up the land route between the established settlements of Sonora and the new colonies of Alta California, and his expedition of 1776 brought overland the colonists who founded San Francisco. Anza's accomplishments were not well understood and hence not appreciated until Bolton assembled all the diaries, journals, and correspondence of Anza and his associates in this publication." 106 plates, 47 facsimiles, and 14 maps (eight folding). Octavo, five volumes. Original blue cloth bindings, with gilt titles. The spines are lightly faded, with some mild rubbing to the corners and tips; otherwise a very good set. The Zamorano Eighty, #7. Very good. Item #70034

Price: $400.00
