    Los Angeles: Powell Publishing Company, (1929.). Hardcover first edition - An economic history of the state dealing with agriculture, petroleum resources, water and power, and the financing of the growth, or to quote the preface: "This volume deals with the material progress of California. It seeks to describe that progress as accurately and dispassionately as possible, and to avoid loose generalizations and willful exaggeration. It is not designed to serve as a handbook for the sale of California real estate. The size of the state, its rich and varied resources, and the unusual lines along which its economic development has proceeded, eminently justify an authentic study of this kind. In the transformation of any region from a wilderness to an empire-in the coming of settlers, the planting of fields, the opening of mines, the felling of forests, the building of cities, the operation of factories, the interplay of commerce, the growth of population-there is not only fascination and human interest; there is also the most genuine stuff of which history can be made." A title in the series 'Calfornia' under the general editorship of John Russell McCarthy. Very attractively illustrated with woodcuts by Aries Fayer. Page with facsimile signatures of California pioneers - 'covered wagon babies' who were born on the trail in 1848, 1849 or the 1850's. Also includes several appendices dealing with Mexican Land Grants, statistical charts, many maps. Index. 322 pp .
