Souvenir of the Hotel del Monte, Monterey, California. Presented with the Compliments of the Manager [Geo. Schonewald]

by Morrow, W. O

Condition: See description


Monterey: the hotel, 1880. Pamphlet. 31p. + a dozen pages of floorplans & rate-tables; illustrated with numerous wood-engraved local scenes mostly fullpage, and a folded leaf of coated stock with hotel scenes on one side and a fine view of Pacific Grove (then sparsely settled but with recognizeable coastline) on the other. Large pamphlet, 9.5x7.5 inch stapled decorated wraps, cover is edgeworn with several tiny chips, some staining, dust and a pencilled date, spinefold is abraded and staples show rust. Internally quite good. Of interest to "natives" is that in this period the Seventeen-Mile Drive was known as the "Eighteen-Mile Drive" --how primitive! be-nighted!
