Descripción

LImited, numbered, signed edition [959/1000]. Book lacking spine board, and front board quite loose, but still solidly bound . Photographic frontispiece by Amanda Matthews and Decorations by Ralph Fullerton Mocine. Colophon states "completed on the twenty-second day of November, one thousand nine hundred and six." Inscribed "Amanda Mathews Chase wishes you a Merry Christmas" on the front free endpaper, and numbered and signed "Amanda Mathews" on the limitation page. Scarce, and unrestored. Sonoratown, one of the oldest neighborhoods (and first Barrio) of Los Angeles, is said to have acquired its name during the Gold Rush, when a wave of people from the Mexican state of Sonora passed through, enroute to the gold fields. The neighborhood flourished from the 1850's to the early years of the 20th Century, where it was supplanted briefly by an Italian neighborhood, and then became L.A.'s current-day Chinatown. It is said that in 1851 alone, approximately 8000 Sonorans on their way to stake out gold mines, passed through Los Angeles, then a town of only 1600. N° de ref. de la librería 72600
