County and Regional Histories & Atlases: California

First compiled and produced by publishers and subscriptions agents for area residents and patrons, these original histories, dating from 1867-1910 represent difficult-to-find materials. Included in this collection of 97 titles are tables and lists of vital statistics, military service records, municipal and county officers, chronologies, portraits of individuals and views of urban and rural life not found anywhere else. The atlases provide additional information on land use and settlement patterns and scarce early town and city plans.
