About This Item

Los Angeles: Dawson's Book Shop, 1972. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. Limited to 500 copies printed by Grant Dahlstrom at the Castle Press, Pasadena. This is Anna Marie Hager's copy, inscribed to her by series editors Ed Carpenter and Glen Dawson, and signed and dated by Grant Dahlstrom. Additionally inscribed by historian Thomas F. Andrews, and accompanied by typed letters signed (TLS) from Andrews and La Siesta Press publisher Walt Wheelock, respectively.

The source material for this, the 28th volume of the Baja California Travel Series, is a San Francisco anti-Catholic weekly of the 1870s, Thistleton's Illustrated Jolly Giant. Janes was a soldier of fortune whose round trip from San Francisco to La Paz provided the adventures (largely mining and revolutionary, including a version of the "El Triunfo War") that are related in a brisk and somewhat humorous fashion.

Octavo: 98 p. with three tipped-in color plates and nine illustrations (two folding). Original rust cloth binding, with gilt titles. Issued without a dust jacket. Light offsetting to the endpapers; else near fine.
