Los Angeles. 1919. 317pp. including numerous photographic plates, plus an additional three leaves of photographic plates. Portrait. Original pictorial cloth, rebacked with original backstrip laid down. Cloth stained, mostly on front board. Significant tideline and staining throughout the text, including evidence of mildew. A fair copy. An important and trail-blazing work in its own right, privately published after years of assiduous research. Mrs. Beasley spent eight years canvassing California, conducting interviews and collecting oral histories, reading unpublished diaries, and corresponding with pioneers. She also did a huge amount of research in the libraries and in published works, county records, and newspapers, including every African-American newspaper published in California since the first was issued in 1855. The resulting book is a monument to her efforts and to the African-American men and women she profiles, from the earliest pioneers through to Spanish-American War veterans and those involved with the 1915 Panama-Pacific International Exposition. Profusely illustrated. COWAN, p.40. ROCQ 16678. N° de ref. de la librería 1653
