[Los Angeles]

[G.S. Holmes]



[56] pp. Profusely illustrated from photographs; inserted double-page map. 15.3x9.3 cm (6x3¾"), original decorative wrappers printed in red & black.

Scarce and well-illustrated handbook "furnishing information in demand by those visiting Southern California." The photographs include many uncommon views of Los Angeles and its surroundings. At the end is a short section Salt Lake City, home to The Knutsford," sister hotel to the Angelus, the recently built L.A. hotel of which this is a promotional booklet. OCLC/WorldCat locates three copies of this 1901 edition, the earliest listed, which has many more pages than the issues from 1902-1906, all of which are also quite scarce.

Lot Amendments

Some soiling and slight staining to wrappers, date 1901 written in top margins in ink; overall very good.
