About This Item

Mission Hills, California: Saint Francis Historical Society, 2001. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine. 1148 p. Frontispiece, with textual illustrations and portraits. Mission Hills, California and Spokane, Washington: Saint Francis Historical Society and The Arthur H. Clark Company, 2001. First edition, limited to 1,534 copies. "Voluminous in its scope, the work contains short sketches on a wide variety of topics. At times scholarly and yet often whimsical, the text evidences some of the biases of the author towards the early mission era, yet illuminates the influential role of Catholics in California." From the James S. Copley Library, with the San Diego newspaper publisher and philanthropist's bookplate to the front pastedown. Original burgundy cloth binding, with gilt stamping. The dust jacket is a touch sun faded along the spine; otherwise a crisp, near fine copy. Clark and Brunet 300.
