Description
A crude 1535 map by Hernán Cortés shows the key landfalls he and his men found in the Gulf of California, touching off the history of Europeans in what would become the Golden State and the Baja Peninsula. A century later Baja California was still an island to Dutch mapmaker Joan Vinckeboons, but the state was soon to become the land of American dreams, as seen in the 1985 Raymond Chandler Mystery Map of Los Angeles, with pictures of key locations depicted in his detective novels. Beautifully illustrated with more than 50 captioned color reproductions of antique maps, surveys, battle plans, bird's-eye views, and other regional images, this is history with an eye to the land and how we used it, reflecting the culture and sensibilities of the state and its residents through time.
