Description:
California: California Historical Society, 1964. Atherton's diary is a virgin historical document which has been heretofore in the possession of his descendants, who only recently deposited it in the California Historical Society Library. Its publication is a signal event in the historiography of California. California in the 1830's was the scene of political turmoil, civil-religious conflict, mushrooming trade and foreign penetration.

Faxon Dean Atherton, a young man from New England, vividly recorded much of that process of change in his diary. Only 1550 copies printed. 1830 Foldout map of Alta California. 246 pp. Notes, Bibliography and Index. Blue-grey cloth with gilt design on front and back and gilt lettering on spine. Book is Fine.DJ's spine slightly darkened. Back inside flap, tiny nick 1/16"x 1/4" otherwise DJ… Read More
