by (Tompkins, Walker A., introduction)
Berkeley: Howell-North. Near Fine in Very Good dj. 1961. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. (in original clear acetate dust jacket) [the book itself shows only minimal wear; the clear acetate dust jacket is lightly scuffed, with small tears (cracks) at the lower left corner of the front cover and the top left corner of the rear cover, and also missing a small (approx 1.5" x .75") chip at the bottom right corner of the front cover]. (B&W plates, maps) Reprint of a work first published in 1883, and which (per the 1961 introduction) "for history prior to 1882, old reliable T & W remains the standard authority in its field, a position it has maintained without serious challenge for over three quarters of a century." The original title page, oddly, makes no mention of Ventura County; it reads "History of Santa Barbara County, California; with illustrations and biographical sketches of its prominent men and pioneers. Oakland, Cal., Thompson & West, 1883." [NOTE: The book's front cover has been scanned *without* the clear acetate jacket.] . (Inventory #: 24592)
