The valley of Santa Clara; historic buildings, 1792 - 1920, with architectural supplement by the Junior League of San Jose

Novato: Presidio Press, 1981. Paperback. 192p., profuse in-text illustrations integrated with the text: find period and contemporary photography, diagrams, facsimiles and line maps. Softbound in 9x7 inch decorated wraps; second edition, originally issued by Jr League of San Jose, possibly reformatted for the reprinting as paragraph layout is a little peculiar, and we found on p.133 a bewildering typo. But basically an excellent well-informed well-written treatment. Condition: covers bear touches of dust and a couple tiny stains, a good copy.

Lots of mission-era and mission-revival buildings; find several Willis Polk and Julia Morgan designs and much more.
